Weeping Naked With My Unfortunate Eyes - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

There is a transom in her eyes
They see at more degrees that an alligator
Who saw me leaving school
Before denouement;
And I have return to her many times,
Underneath the penumbra of the moony skies;
And I have returned to her and drunken alone,
Until my rucksacks were empty of
My father’s fireworks,
And I was done with my soda,
And with my jerks;
So I imagined her there above the busty head
Of a gray wolverine,
Shooting like streamers of pure crinoline:
She had her busts turned into twin engines jugging
And Jack was planting his beanstalk under her
She was almost waiting for him,
With that promiscuous glint in her eye,
Her black fields almost green, while I knew
I could never really be entirely enough for her,
Because she had so many stewardesses serving drinks
Between the wingspan of her opulent thighs:
She had so many things changed inside of her,
That she was never more perfectly in disguise,
While I looked forever up at her,
Weeping naked with my unfortunate eyes.
