Two Haiku

By Bud Koenemund

In the Ear of the Beholder

For Kitty Boyce

"Fuck me!" Vulgar in
polite society. But,
welcome from your lips.


Darkness and Light

For "Her."

Some say the darkness
is as much a gift as light.
My heart disagrees.

Vulgar Divinity

By Bud Koenemund

For Kitty

The words – vulgar – not for use in polite company.
Yet, somehow beautiful in your mouth…in the moment.
Arms embracing…
Bodies superimposed…
Fingers searching…
Mouths touching, each breathing in the others' breath…
…and your moan in my ear, urging me on.

In the physical, we're not "making love,"
or merely "having sex." No, desire for one another has driven us past that.
And, as our little deaths approach…
"Fuck me!"
This plea, paired with endearments, becomes divine;
a connection to some heavenly thing I reach out to grasp
before plummeting back to Earth.
