ponderous poetry for the hoi polloi

An Artist named Paul

Oh my love!

Throw back another hey, eh, one more day,

And slap me in the face

Like a thousand guitar strings,

Splintering beneath each chord which

I club, clout, and clobber in

Recognition

Of the reciprocal inhibition, you do

Induce,

From head to toe…

Pure polychromatic perfection,

An Art Garfunkel exhibition if I ever did see…

No!

Simon says:

“And here’s to you, Mrs. Apparition,

Jesus (would) love to know you more and more…

And…

More…

Salt & Pepper

Salt and pepper,

Lime juice

Sunburn,

Margarita rim job,

Makes me squint with joy!

Ahoy!

Someone call the elevator

Boy!

 

Ding! Dong!

Gin and olives,

Queueing for a postage stamp in the

Posthypnotic Post Office,

Waiting for the solstice,

Sticker licker

Telegraphic ticker tape,

Takes the piss

Don’t make me wait!

 

You catch my drift?

(No, not really, sir)…

“Ooo, I like the cut of your jib!”

She says,

Clutching to the stick shift,

Shawl collar,

Short shrift,

Don’t short-change the

Wrist,

Lovers’ tiff,

How I could riff on you for

Days!

The Steam Room

I’m locked in the steam room,

Pending further notice, and

Gawping at myself like a gargoyle in the bathroom mirror,

Post-shower

Secret operative,

Still searching for a long-lost

Love-in-a-mist,

Oh! Attach me to your

Mailing list,

(Or at the very least,

Come wipe the condensation from my

Lips!)

Lunar eclipse,

Don’t leave me in this steaming abyss…

Rock Around the Clock

My girl, she’s a

Prime suspect,

Second-sighted sunset,

Third-person shooter with a trigger-happy reflex…

 

Fourth dimension and

Five-finger discount,

Sixth times a charm when you’re skipping past the checkout…

 

She’s the Seven Hills of Rome around the

Eightfold path,

Nine times out of

Ten you’ll do a hot lap laugh…

 

And if elevenses isn’t enough to get your tongue wet,

Then at 12 you can always hit the reset!

VII

If you forget your umbrella

I’ll be your emergency poncho,

And save you from the rain.
