Paradise Dwells


for decades    I sought
Paradise   —   in beauty
         in bottles         in women’s hearts
                                                             between their legs   .  .  .

a few years back
            in a rock-bottom
                                drunkard’s dream
I found the most open secret   —

now     I carry Paradise
                                               with me
                              worn as a smile
everywhere
                           I go
