A Kiss

Didn’t Sappho say her guts clutched up like this?
Before a face suddenly numinous,
her eyes watered, knees melted. Did she lactate
again, milk brought down by a girl’s kiss?

Morning at the Window

They are rattling breakfast plates in basement kitchens,
And along the trampled edges of the street
I am aware of the damp souls of housemaids
Sprouting despondently at area gates.

The brown waves of fog toss up to me
Twisted faces from the bottom of the street,
And tear from a passer-by with muddy skirts
An aimless smile that hovers in the air
And vanishes along the level of the roofs.
T. S. Eliot

This is the end, beautiful friend
This is the end, my only friend, the end

Lipstick

         

“I find your lips
so kissable.
And your kiss
unmissable.
Your fingertips
untouchable.
And your eyes
irresistible.”
(Lovable by Joyce)

Pony Ride

There is nothing quite like riding in the country!

I had a little pony,
His name was Dapple-Gray,
I lent him to a lady,
To ride a mile away.
She whipped him, she slashed him,
She rode him through the mire;
I would not lend my pony now
For all the lady’s hire.
(Mother Goose)

In my mind mind you are perfection
The vibration my own selection
Thoughts of you my Kitty
