Treasure Island

Dónall Dempsey

(15/07/56 / Curragh Camp, Co. Kildare, Eire.)


& in white panties

the artist
conjours up

my naked form
sprawled before her

ever attentive eye.

I listen to
the whisper of

her charcoal
telling its secrets

to the silent page.

'Sha...sha...sha...dow! '
it says sotto voce

whilst short sharp little scratches
produce the stubble of my beard.

Her eye
darts back & forth

back & forth
ever attentive.

I gaze at the beauty
of her breasts

swaying back & forth
back & forth

with every stroke

my image
taking form

beneath the magic
of her hand.

Topless &
in white panties

the artist
feels herself

drawn to me

until finally

she comes...kisses me

reclining nude now
with her reclining nude male.

Outside in the garden
a wood pigeon coos & coos & coos

above the sound
of many kisses.

    The Artist and her Model

    Soft charcoal touching
    where words cannot say how strong
    his smooth shoulder feels.

    With all my love

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
