Two possibilities

In this dawn lives
the possibility
of a near-yesterday
and a would-be tomorrow.
This is the sky that starts it all

My lust dream of you
is a broken record
I would never want fixed.
It plays every morning,
repeated one way and then the next.

Gypsy

Ann-Margret-feminine
the sacred goddess within
you are only half-covered in
boho clothes that expose
your collar bone,
cleavage 
and pelvic bones
No makeup, but a choker
with moonstone,
an ankh ring on your toe
and other body adornments,
fine pencil-stroke
hair spun like mulga silk
scented with musk

A vacancy & other notes

woman with black fedora
and film noir face

the sky looks
half decidedly
at me

she announced
a vacancy
in her heart

sex a recurring
theme in my poetry

idiomatic
pleonasm
syntactic
pleonastic

That place & other bits pieces

I’ll take you to that place —
you go there in dreams

girl decides on
modified macchiato
after much debate
with genial barista

the job descriptions lengthy,
innumerable lifetimes’
worth of duties

clouds in windows
like picture frames
whose subjects
were dreams

Biker chick & other bits

pleasantly startled
by svelte girl straddling
Harley with black
stiletto boots

his book a ruse
to sit and stare
indulgently at me

grape juice
w/ home-packed
lunch in cafeteria
as outcast kid

Costly cookies & other notes

branches, leaves
bark and roots
scattering broadly
in this family tree

hot lust

grimacing teen
girl with strong
air of angst
clicking her
mousepad
repeatedly

on black
business card
he proclaimed
himself a model
and brand
ambassador
in periwinkle text

after prolonged tussling
with cellophane bag
woman in two-tone
blue tennis cap
chomps victoriously
on overpriced cookies

Emanatrix, etc.

this is a place
where thinking happens

thinking never
happens in the presence
of dust and decay

she had run out of delineation lines

emanatrix

orgasms emanate
from an eternal inferno?

2 amorous fragments

if anything,
I want to take with me
the woman on the
cover of Muse —
10th anniversary
issue

tall and handsome,
he introduced himself
as London,
and the otherwise-seemly
matron erupted in a chortle

Recent bits and pieces

silent footsteps in my heart,
a girl at war

is the phrase “carousing flapper”
a redundancy?

his head was trigger happy
