I left my demons
in the day and
slipped into the night
into the black fog.
The sooth caresses me
forever rocking me.
The dynamo can no longer
blow on my face
the stars are quiet,
I howl at the moon
I am at peace
With the night

Papa cannot rich me
even though my penis
may not stand erect
I am man I am man.
Condoms and mollock
wife and mollock
padlock and mollock
promises and mollock

take me oh night
rock me in your fur skin
rock me gently
rock me slowly.
