Soft And Satin Furred - Poem by gershon hepner

Soft and satin furred like llamas,
licking with a silent sound,
women turn men’s dreams to dramas,
searching for a common ground.

Inspired by two lines by Mickey Spillane, who died last week at the age of 88:

This one had crazy electric blue eyes that could smile, as well as a full-lipped mouth, and when she said “Good morning, ” it was like being licked by a soft, satin furred llama (The Killing Man) .

Silence has a funny sound (The Body Lovers) .
