JAMES BELL

JASMINE

sin sweetly at all stopping places
remember jasmine is tea as well as flower
tower above, not before what seems crazy
enjoy the sip of nectar in silence

remember jasmine is tea as well as flower
its hour is when you sit or kneel
enjoy the sip of nectar in silence
appeal to nobody for respite

its hour is when you sit or kneel
clothed or naked and relaxed
appeal to nobody for respite
this time is yours alone each night

clothed or naked and relaxed
others share jasmine by invitation
this time is yours alone each night
you have had this conversation before

others share jasmine by invitation
tower above, not below what seems crazy
you have had this conversation before
sin sweetly at all stopping places
