A belated Valentine’s verse.
She is small, but fiercely sensual. Enjoy.
Mirror me the methods of seduction
from centuries long past
The age of human desire, shifts and sways
yet it’s lustful stripes remain unchanged.
What words stole breath,
What visceral aches prevaded?
How did Romulus lay the captive Sabine lover?
How Andromeda on rocky outcrop chained?
How beckon come hither, Aphrodite? With such plentiful bounty?
To set the trap,
What sweet bait
Ensnared the lover to tumultuous beast
What hook begat line,
Sinking knees, penitent, to ground.
Tender tongues and trembling thighs
Shiver of universal pulse,
How does the mere mortal set tap to your celestial vein?
By what rounded needle do we spread the skin?
And draw out the life of love incarnate?
