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

The Hallowell picture threw me as it seemed somewhat stark and rigid and most unsensual. The poem starts of with very vivid descriptions of that box in which you store memories as well as trinkets. Then it spills out of the wooden crate into a descriptive account of an intimate 'candlelit' dinner shared by lovers. A very entertaining freeverse big 'E'
