The Voyeur - Poem by Chuck Audette

From his dark window,
his view was heaven-sent
he could see across in the apartment below
where she danced a naked torment

Her perfect breasts and shapely ass
as she did each ballet move
in the dark he gave a ragged gasp
and got into his groove

he enjoyed his lucky strokes of fate
for she hadn't pulled the shade just yet
and when she did it was too late
(he'd already gotten the silhouette!)

    Chuck,
    A shaking head, a grin...
    a great big sigh, a ten again.

    Admittedly it took a second read to pick up the subtle wordplay in the final stanza - you set the tone well before delivering the punchline -thought this line was rather evocative: 'where she danced a naked torment.' Your poems are becoming more and more diverse Chuck- keep them coming. Justine. (Report)Reply

    Funny, punchy, and with more than an element of truth... love the perspective. So to speak. Grand, C. t x (Report)Reply

    Oh, yes, I remember this little number from PIM (shorter version) . Good punning in the last line; I'd never have got that, innocent that I am, hee! A wild and free write with a pinch o' punchy pun! (Report)Reply
