Dear Alex – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

At dVerse Laura is hosting Meeting the Bar with an invitation to choose one of five book inscriptions and use it as an epigram, and they to write a poem.

The inscription I chose was:

“Alex – a few moments of reading pleasure in return for an evening of sensual delights. Denis” Jean Anthelme

Dear Alex

Dear Alex,
I've binned the bottles and stowed
the leftover chicken,
O what a night we had,
a drunken reverie fit for Bacchus,
like a game of twister gone wrong,
interweaving, interloping,
our glass always full,
I finished the cheese on which we supped,
and I washed your skirt that fell with grace,
which you left with haste as we dined with lust
upon our divine flesh,
salted with amour.

  2. perfectly rendered ending to that night – the poem flows with a rumba like rhythm
    “I washed your skirt that fell with grace,
    which you left with haste as we dined with lust”
