Not a Poem in the House

Postby dancuddy » Thu Dec 19, 2013 2:49 pm

Not a poem in the house
Nothing to wow
An academic or boudoir reader
Biting into the skins of grapes
That Leak the juice
That weans the purple evening
of intellectual fare
That Jack built
with ribald ellipses
Eclipsing the occasional
lapse of good taste
Ah, exotic Mediterranean erotic
Oh, the square of chocolate,
and miniature melon of grape
Please Cleopatricize
And toast the dirigible
So puffed with airy stimulation
Elating the figure you lounge
in the chaise
To a sigh of poetry
Well-accomplished
Unblemished by a critical
Confrontational prick
Unless stimulating and benign
