Rookie - 166 Points (April,1967 / Toronto, Canada)

Musement


I was your safe, shallow fantasy;
esoteric exotic erotic

A prick which proved all too tempting;
erroneous onerous ironist
opportunity

I served as a
musement
for your
naughty little self indulgent vices
of grandiose regression...

Eroticized,
romanticized redeemer:

the one to release you
from banality's
blue-boxed bonds
of ‘bivalent, bittersweet
repression

Your lurid licentious liaison
before the ring of
commitment's unsettling lips

The proverbial odd man
in and out;
without
an easy chair
when the muse-ic finally died
