Passion Collision | A Poem by G.S. Katz

would have kissed you harder
you kept me slightly at bay
next time will be different
passion collision
no fault
mouth on mouth
only coming up for air
no deposit, no return
Mr. Manhattan
lurking in your tangled hair
in your rear view mirror
on line at the bank
while cooking eggs…

Zone 5 | A Poem by G.S. Katz

my compartment
zone of the interior
safe deposit room
chamber behind the stairs
good place for writing
a quick sandwich
a 15 minute nap
or a quick romp
everyone needs a space
to call their own
to find solace
or fill a desire
zone 5
is my sanctuary
will I see you there?
bring napkins……

Lou Reed Never Wore Brown | A Poem by G.S. Katz

The original Punk
Kid from Long Island
Who blasted into our Rock psyche
Alcohol Haze
Sweet Jane
New Sensations
Walks on the Wild Side
You could always depend on Lou
Always in our NYC mantra
Gays before there were Gays
Hard women
Transsexual lullabies
Lower East Side
Pain because it felt good
The music
Searing guitars
Off key slightly
Seedy one night stands
Sex in cheap hotels
With bad lighting
Somehow it wasn’t so bad
When Lou sang about it
One thing is for sure
Punk is wounded
We lost our Captain
Who went quietly into the dark night
R.I.P. Lou
You will be missed
Thank you
For never wearing brown……

Conceptual Waiting | A Poem by G.S. Katz

People make you wait
Nothing you can do about it
Don’t try to rush them
You’ll get more excuses than you need

Look at your phone
People watch
Take a nap
Dream about winning lotto

Take it in stride
If you tell them you’re mad
Next time you’ll wait longer
Part of the gig…

High Wire | A Poem by G.S. Katz

passion and romance
and then
the opening
the walkway looking west
a small cutaway
I held you close
staring into your laser eyes
holding you tight
tenderness spinning out of control
but a new control emerged
one you knew was buried
deep in my brow
matching you stare for stare
electrons and gamma rays
cross stimulation
I took your smile
and marked it
with my glare
taking you
under my wing
protecting you
feeding you
giving you breath
tasting your submission
leaving you hungry for more……

Violent Lovely Passion | A Poem by G.S. Katz

I took you as a lover
And we were good at it
The lust, the love, the gateway
To every fantasy I ever had
Conquering fear
Going beyond
Swimming in waters that others
Could only dream about
Violent lovely passion
Where only the edge makes sense……

Sleep vs. Nap | A Poem by G.S. Katz

precious commodity
never enough
don’t take it for granted
a zone out in paradise
somewhere between
is the precious nap
sometimes better than 8
20 minutes of bliss
the recharge mantra
the time out for adults
just let me have this
then I’ll zoom some more

I Bask in Your Glow | A Poem by G.S. Katz

you do have me
to have and to hold
I bask in your glow
and wait for your mail
with each new day
a new light
avenues of growth
living and laughter
warmth and connection

I can hardly believe how you have
taken me
taken my sharp edges and worn them down
pushed every layer back
accepting no less
calling me on my bs when appropriate
and swimming in my love and lust

you are gentle and intense
but you love with the passion of fire
you have claimed me and saw something in me
and taken it for yourself
deservedly so
I will protect you from the bad
and cover you in a shroud of love
your Man
Your Spirit
Your being inside of me
I share you
I am you……
