A Poem for Izzie and Iggy

What you devoutly shared,
You might
still
have shared
Not as lovers’ secrets,
But as thoughts, open
And showing your care



A clear communion,
As between one speck
From another world and
One more, made kindred
By shared origin ?



Or do ‘the poets pipe
Of love’ childishly ? :
Gawain
, elevating
His slight dalliance,
Because he is famed… ?

Postlude :




Twinned traitors

He enjoys stories
Of her dark,
sexy
exploits
With the other men


It makes the sex sharp,
And
fine
, that he might hit her
For what he'd allowed



Succubus

Sucking your nipples
Till you
came
(or seemed to come... ?)
Accorded prowess :


Flattery's efforts
Let you worm in warming hope
Which you could then
crush



End-notes

* These are the other Parts : Part I, Part II, Part III, and Part IV.
