Plays out Don Juan trope
Imagining them all his
Spends his life dreaming

The slippery slope
Into desire’s abyss
And ends up screaming

    A well-crafted double senryu, Ben. I like the rhyme scheme, and also noticed the poem still works if the rhyming lines follow each other. Found that interesting…(though not a senryu then).
