What to do with Pleasure (For Deleuze & Proust)

The jealous one’s pleasure – to discover
the beloved’s lack
and in the sudden withdrawal
of an eager hand
Take that little ball of joy –
mishandled, dropped and slipped
and do not hate or despise it
Take it and toss it around
on violent ground
in your head
on your bed
where the truth never sleeps

    The last three poems have been very sharp. Each ends with a strong decleration. Good work!
