  49.     

Virtuoso

Virgin in angelic white,
Feathered anticipation.
Stretched and taunt,
My body awaits your strokes.
Wanton and firm,
Caress my body.
I shiver, as feverish waves,
Bleed over my yearning torso.
Crimson Climax,
Quenches my desire only until.
Your venetian tongue licks my albino to succumb.
Bestir, bleed your palette dry,
I crave each drop.
My love, my life,
My shadow.

A Gun In The Blueberry Pie

I went out tonight with the guy's
Bonding at the local strip bar
Killing the Bud's and eating the spud's
Life was great you see.

The wife was smiling went I arrived,
A home cooked meal that couldn't wait.
I hugged her twice though she seemed cold
Distracted, unaware of my fate.

She pulled out the ice cream,
And I pulled out the cake.
She smiled again, a blueberry pie,
Gosh, I couldn't wait!

A Loving Wife

A bomb with a memory
'Thats armed'

  52.     

A POET IS A NAUGHTY CHILD BUT

A good poet is a naughty child.
Breaking hearts.
Playing with people's emotions.
Stirring up forgotten memories.
Reviving repressed memories.
Laughing in the face of death.

Like a washwoman wringing the soiled shirt,
Rubbing edges of humanity, brushing scabs,
Looking for wrinkles in disrepair.
Verbalizing what adults will not.
Telling the truth, wars to be fought,
Dreams to be dreamed.
Souls to confess, songs to be sung.
Making meaning of life.

Dissecting feelings and thoughts,
Justifying vanity.
Fashion fragments of life,
Bringing innocence into fashion.
Fashioning beauty from the barren.
In the silence of night,
A solitary figure,
Whose kingdom has no ending.
