Firewater


A beginning
Soaked in perfection
As effervescent hope
Saturates the soul
A baptism to an ageless beauty
As you caress her hyaline texture
Blending to her vintage complexion
To make love to her luscious body
With the tip of your tongue
As man solvates his inhibition
In a magical chalice
A paramount rite of passage
Dwarfing all other pubescent milestones
A practice absolved of vows
Your own clandestine mistress
Who breathes fire into water
With fiery eyes and supple hips
Who will stand by her man
Even when the legs are feeble
And the cane is nigh

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
