A Poem by NoneOfYourBusiness akaKITTY KUTABAREakaCandyPole

You had me, at petal; aren’t I simple?
I started a tempting lean into the persuasive melody
and found a thousand notes
tucked under my sparrow bones
a owl quill under my clavicle
and ink in the dark liquid of my pupils

I wrote you a love song on a wafer
slipped it under your tongue
inside a fabled kiss
a sonnet on a piece of linen
pushed into your back pocket with my hand
on a ordinary walk down by the river

A verse, I painted on your hips
while you lay dreaming beneath the canopy of my saga
and a rhyme, carved from my restless fingertips
stained the collar of your shirt
in red traces

You had me at petal, and thought I was simple
until the notes materialized
in a thousand varying shapes, in a thousand different places
in a thousand different dyes
over a thousand and one nights
until my gown was a whisper of papyrus and leaves
stitching the hemline of our story, with two possible endings

You had me at petal, but I am not simple . . . .

Your prose tingles the senses, flips it upside down and works its way into your spine. I love the flow, the meter, the wonderful ways in which you say things in a fresh, spirited way. I am always fond of your skills in penning the most sensual, yet understated lines.

delish taste of divine aesthetes honey drawn reckless into this souls hungry mind! Your provocative ink ever the nimble proboscis to draw the heady mind-speak that so artfully titillates the creative palate! Merci merci!

It seems like the entire poem is spent trying to keep this story with color and meaning. There is paint, words written on a wafer, stitching hemlines.

It's amazing. I loved every word.

that wonderful botanical term "deceit pollination".... the orchid offering a shiny patch, the bee thinking it is nectar....and the odd thing is, they never learn
