A beautiful couplet
took my breath away
Trying to translate its exquisite nuances
Is keeping me awake….
Taking each literal word
in my mouth I let
it melt ….an ice cube astride a neat shot
Giving me a natural euphoric high…..
besotted by it’s
gorgeousness I’ve arrived
At a poetic impasse..that neither lets me
move forward nor backwards as I playfully
Continue fawning, wooing each nuance with my
tongue bordering on the risqué fully in it’s embrace
As if it were a writhing physical
being in throes of petit morts
