Sensuous

Sensuous

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

 
Loie Hollowell's Sensuous, Suggestive Paintings Provoke and Delight �
(image by Loie Hallowell)
Sensuous
cod .............salted, 
dried and packed in
wooded treasure boxes with 
sliding wood lids
I kept things in there once. 
Things like a pair of red dice,
my lucky rabbits foot ... the real one;
A couple baseball cards ... rubber bands, tacks
And     .......................             dreams of women.
Purring warm with the
fluidity of solids ..........with glow
conscious and alive in my hands 
hands cupped and spooning
a table for two
sun baked linen 
shaken to clothe flat quiet table
curves of warm cherry wood legs crevassed behind blue eyes
 minds ....and .... hands 
                                      exploring
so many forks for one meal
(I don't know what they're all for)
red cream 
smooth flow 
radiates radish sauces
star veins pink when opened
over smooth and rippling dimples
fitted as one
a table for two .........................sensuous.

That you ever think to combine all these ideas & make it into a cohesive flow is your main magic. That you go from cod box to memories to sumptuous dinner . . . it's a zig-zag only a zany mind might make! I love the part when your poem goes from the routine particulars of what's in the box to the part where sensuality seeps into your reverie. I love that this poem conveys "sensuous" without making it about the physicality of the human form. Most people are turned on by such subtle extravagances (love the parenthetical fork comment) in memories! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I am relishing this poem, your thoughts flowing, blending with subtlety, those different kinds of tastes, the visual delights mixed with the olfactory ones and those that stir the taste buds and other senses too at all at once and the same time. The sensuousness builds up as the poem flows, I stop and savour every treat your words lay out for me. There's nothing like a sensuously fitted table for two! Loved this poem, dear sir!

I had a box like this...baseball cards, boy scout handbook, Eagle badge,
Rock collection...imaginings of Judy Fracaro whom I loved from afar in grade school but never had the courage to tell her.....and damn...we had a reunion and i was going to tell her then so we could have a good laugh over it...but she died of cancer before the reunion...she will never know that I kept thoughts of her in that box...
I wonder if she ever noticed me?
maybe I needed a rabbit's foot...might have brought me good luck with her.
You take me on such a nostalgia trip here...
I love saving old things...my dad's penny collection which he gave me...it means so much to have that of his...he collected those...he's gone, but that part of him remains with me.
I have really old photos in an old album my mom gave me.
Relatives i never knew...ones who died before I was born...my mom's mom, my dad's dad...
and the photo in my avatar of my mom and me when I was 10 days old.
keepsakes are priceless....the ones that can only be measured by the heart....
this poem is amazing...and damn...my mom did teach me which one was the shrimp fork, but when I was older than 10 days.

What a wonderfully expressive piece E, that surprises and conjures images of a box of dreams and hopes, memories and delights treasured.
Have an old box with old concert tickets and little mindings that evoke such wonderful memories, moreso for the fact that I lost most of everything in a fire a few years back, bur fate left it intact, which considering it's made of wood, only adds another memory to it, as well as a slight smoky smel.
There's even a wine label from a posh meal with too much cutlery too. Wish I pinched a spoon now 😀
A wonderful piece, that lets me wander your wanderings, while remembering our own.

You've created a rich, colourful and delicious feast, here, Mr. Noodle! You've not over-seasoned your phrases or accentuated the wooden boxes in a state of sensuous awareness, You inevitably write with fine phrasing.. and in this case, tastefully. ' a table for two - baked linen - shaken to clothe flat quiet table - curves of warm cherry wood legs - crevassed behind blue eyes - minds ....and ... '

and.. my kind of music!

great write. a smorgasbord of sentiment, a buffet of feelings and memories. you've certainly done the cooking and set the table. i take it that there was plenty of room in that box and at the table for those dreams of women. as i read i was reminded of the song by sinatra - luck be a lady tonight. this was a pleasantly different and i enjoyed it. the tiny fork is for the shrimp right? ... :)

What a wonderful treat. Keep the box handy and close, keep your date close in sensuality, keep the memories close to cherish at a moment's notice. Your poems delve into the precious things and memories and times gone into the psyche sir Einstein. .

Thank you for sharing this treasure box of memories.
I like how they morph and take shape midway, as if the simple everyday things take shape into something beautiful and warm. Something real. Relived
