Don O’Cull’s Poetry

Delirium

 

Our sobriety faded,
we kissed under the canopy
of loud sad songs,
in the saucebox of the bar,
between a dim flux of music
and the breath of crowds.
We were shiny and heavy,
sweetly awkward,
like stumbling elephants…
We shared random, criminal words;
our sense of duty disappeared
in the lullaby breeze
of a quick drive to privacy;
we spun and fell together
into delirium,
mindless of the distant morning.

 

 Don O’Cull is a teacher who lives and writes in St Petersburg, FL.
