To Lisa (1953 - 2009)

Down upon the steaming dregs of memory,

Where luminous squid and grinning dolphins feed

Where goddesses lurk, whose humid armpits reek of gold

And the gnawed over carrion of love gone cold

There I stumbled upon you,

Lost in the traffic of time's fell speed

Beyond all touch and comfort

Beyond all loss and need

Never was death so real
