Bareboned: Shadorma

BAREBONED

He showed her
How to dream rainbows
First he came
Then he went
Not even a fare thee well
Just a one night stand

The Second Chakra

THE SECOND CHAKRA

Always plenty of energy in the second chakra
Hangover from that life spent as a tabla player
Pleading for a little close attention and silliness
“Though I must warn you it may not end up well”

Always plenty of energy in the second chakra
Three sheets to the wind – Egregiously gracious
Each gave away a shy smile, a nod and a wink
“I’d like to end up on both sides of the fence”

Always plenty of energy in the second chakra
Still like they say after all you never can tell
‘Don’t judge a scroll by its paper’ (Xena 1:10)
“I’m not too fast for you, you’re too slow for me”

Weekend Wake-up Call (An acrostic)

WEEKEND WAKE-UP CALL

Stealthily,
Awakening
Tickles
Under
Rustling
Duvet
Arouse
Yearning

Take Off

TAKE OFF

Taking off
Like a butterfly

Taking off
Like a startled starling

Taking off
A well known character

Taking off
Like a jet fighter

Taking off
A burdensome disguise

Taking off
A shirt, a skirt, our underclothing

Taking off
Into the unknown

Taking on now
Disguise in love with you

Re: Virginity

RE: VIRGINITY
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..For Ms Harris
Whatever’s precious
Though gone in a flash remains
This place, this moment

Come-on

COME-ON

If sex is magic
(And who are we to question?)
Let us explore it

Fanfare

FANFARE

Flying in couples
Ten crows silently trumpet
Spring is in the air

Lothario

LOTHARIO

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

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

Goin’ Home

GOIN’ HOME

You have your keyboard with you
plus I see you brought your keys along too.
As for me: I have as you see brought my horn along.

No bass required to intervene, as agreed. Too basing.
No superfluous traps either. A binding promise.
Let’s go play the blues then. Melt into one another’s I’s

Country sounds good (when using ears rather than eyes)
while delta seems inviting also. Finger style?
I’m more than willing if that’s your choice.

Twelve bar, sixteen bar, thirty-two bar if you like.
Muddy water. Let’s dive in and search for a pearl.
Fare thee well. Forever. See you on that other shore.

In His Cups

IN HIS CUPS

A sip of wine
A hint of melody …
Hallowed foundations
Shift ungoverned

Melt into lavaflows
Unleash unadmitted yearnings
Challenge this paltry masquerade
Yelled from minaret or pulpit

Hounded by fatwa and heresy
Across the centuries, this dented I
Which has, for all of that brouhaha
Such shallow roots

Must be why they ban
These dangerous demons
Intoxication, music,
Dancing, sex

While we for our part
Fight tooth and nail
To retain or else regain
These royal roads
