Ed Coletti, Movie Title Poem 26, Le Sang d’un Poete (Jean Cocteau 1930)

                 Ed Coletti's Beat-Head 

Movie Title Poem 26

Le Sang d’un Poete (Jean Cocteau 1930)

...sweetest is the blood
                        of poets

                        - David Madgalene

Hyperoxygenated with
the stuff of soul
this languorous blood
fat and crimson
leans against
vessels greased like
butter-laced skillets
awaiting onset
of certain sizzle.

Serum suffuses
organs other
than brain or mind.
When it comes to
alternative faculties,
such juice jelly or jam
provokes and obsesses
much the same as when
wild worthy demonic
beckoning space
rearing unbridled
between her breasts
preposterously possesses.
