“This Is My Beloved” (Walter Benton)

ENTRY April 28

Because hate is legislated . . . written into
the primer and testament,
shot into our blood and brain like vaccine or vitamins

Because our day of time, of hours — and the clock-hand turns,
closes the circle upon us; and black timeless night
sucks us in like quicksand, receives us totally —
without a raincheck or a parachute, a key to heaven or the last long look

I need love more than ever now . . . I need your love,
I need love more than hope or money, wisdom or a drink

Because slow negative death withers the world and only yes
can turn the tide
Because love has your face and body . . . and your hands are tender
and your mouth is sweet —- and God has made no other eyes like yours.

-Walter Benton (1940’s / is the Man) Arthur Prysock (1970 / “This is my Beloved”) does a fantastic verbal rendition.

•7:24pm, Basho, I’m here but I don’t feel like Processing, Printing, Matting or anything…want to go out and be … it’s gonna get better. Thinking about going over to the bar ‘Fire” for a couple of Pints.

• 11:45pm, Well, got that out my system… two pints, two slices of pizza and now, early to bed for good start tomorrow.
