After The Talking 1973 - Poem by Terry Collett

Sonya talks
endlessly
her Danish

stark beauty
saves her from
boring me

to no end
the Wagner
opera

in London
had gone well
a good meal

and fine booze
then back home
to her place

a snatch of
Delius
then it's bed

lying there
after sex
she talking

of the art
of being
what we make

of ourselves
from our birth
to our graves

I'm thinking
of the dame
singing loud

in Wagner's
Das Rheingold
how her breasts

stole the show
as they say
the show's not

over till
the fat dame
sings her last

ending note
then Sonya
talks no more

and we lay
down in bed
to make love

with Wagner's
opera
going round
in my head.

    so simple and light!
    and we lay
    down in bed
    to make love

    with Wagner's
    opera
    going round
    in my head.
