WHERE WERE YOU? (ADULT POETRY)

Where were you?
When cold threw shivers
And tears on my fragile body
And boxed me like Azumah in his boxing fury?

II
Where were you?
When scarce waters
Were woken from deep pots
And made to flow into gutters
Like unneeded waters from a washed colander?

III
Where were you?
When the gates of bodily heavens opened
With no guards and called out your name
Like a desperate preacher calling on God?

IV
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where the hell where you?
When moans were chained into near future
As horses of pleasure stood quietly
Strapped to a love chariot
With our names boldly engraved on?

V
Now the horses are free
The waters died in seas of filth
Sympathetic heat has wrestled the cold
And the bodily heaven gate has been shut to you
Your chance stuck in the past
So stand like Lot of salt
And await your punishing rain
As I travel into the realm of a prompt one
Legs of my heart, walk
