    Any more thoughts?


    ______—for Phuoc-Tan Diep


    ____________trying it once-trying it again

    blasting the poetic public-with our new cleavages

    _______cleaving that place-in their brains

    they didn’t know existed!-where angels fear to tread!

    ____uncleaving ourselves-poetically speaking

    _starting something new-not knowing where it’s going

    _____trying all the doors-to find openings
    ________that cleave form-pushing our brains


    _____________cleave me!!!-cleave me!!!

    _____LangClo Cleavage

    ___—for Phuoc-Tan Diep

    _______Please-don’t listen to me

    I’m just trying-to charm you

    ____the world-out of you

    ____ out on youinto me




    ___teamwork-The Trinity

    ____________diamond cleavage

    ____cleaving is like = making love
    lying on your back = with her on top
    _doing all the work = cleaving you
    ______perfectly still = like a diamond
    ____the cleave/gem = a diamond haiku


    _each cleave is different—just like making love.
    ____each time is unique—and erotically intense.
    _______each cleave-gem—cleaves the brain perfectly.
    each time is right brain—left brain cleave.
    _right down the middle—splits you in half.
    __each diamond cleave—is yours to keep.
    ____it doesn’t last long—but it’s deep.
