Choice - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

Predatory male knows what
he wants upon finding desire.
As a woman knows
lamp lit face of hunger.
Desires of fickle flesh
are easily provoked.
Satisfied by first form
appeasing pleasing to eye.

Walk night washed roads
towards sealed red lit abodes.
But stage show holds no glitter
feel downtrodden human litter.
Whores paid for palm has no pleasure.
Meaningful soul embracing answer.
Still lost in mirage mirror reflection.
Shows nothing of blazing source conception.

Love absorbs mind
as well as subservient body.
Deep genuine love
like a rare flower.
Found ennobled amidst
secreted hidden places.
Not sold crushed
on common byway?

Half quenched crushed heart.
Struggles to life pulse survive.
Inner knowledge omniscient flows
fermented from sublime source.
Life purpose strives to compel assert!
Demands completion despite aims errant!
Drifting back tide that turns sucks
soul out before a deeper surging sea.


Predatory male knows that which
he wants upon finding driven desire.
As a disadvantaged woman knows
lamp lit lonely face of biting hunger.
Desires of testosterone fickle flesh
are easily pleasingly provoked.
Satisfied powered by first firm form
appeasing pleasing to appetite eye.
