Jungle Smile

 

Hamaca

Jungle Smile

Your  beaded snakeskin loincloth

strung beneath humid palms

cool rippling breeze that calms

our hammock hung under thatch

what a catch…

your Amazons running into my Congo 

lost track of my bongo

back about one mile

from the sources of the Nile:

your jungle smile…

restoring all celestial things

deep within your tropical clearings…

flowing slowly, going loco

at the mythic mouth of the Orinico…

shake your nut-brown biospheres

and banish all my worldly fears.

Dusk is nearing — clearing the hill

insects trilling a sinuous thrill;

the yuca half-mashed in the clay pot

the witch doctor hungover in his hut

while our little fire smolders

near the mountains of the moon

– or are they only boulders?

Come soon

Jesus, Lord of the Jungle…
