The words I have chosen are: Bangles, chit, Chutney, cashmere.

“… chutney reigns on my plate.” Robyn Brittow

Ever To Remind

The retro,
well, that's what I call it,
always playing yesterday's music on loop,
the Bangle's have been around twice in an hour
since the barista hung the chit for our espresso,
the steak sandwich arrived while we
mused about the the weather pouring in,
daunting slabs of bread weighing the table down,
the waiter saying steak and chuckney. 
You picked yours up and gorged your cheeks full,
the chutney oozing through your lips sweet and sticky,
such a passionate celebration,
dark drops falling to the rise of your 
bright orange cashmere sweater,
ever to remind.

Except – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Photo by Studio Negarin : https://www.pexels.com/photo/photo-of-couple-lying-on-grass-field-3650271/

“I’m oxygen and he’s dying to breathe.” Tahereh Mafi

Except

I would ask nothing of you,
except a share of the love you hold
in the place we lie down together
and labour our breathing in unison,
to look into your eyes and know 
that precipice we both seek,
precursor to a tightly wound desire,
an instalment on finding that
whole experience again.

“The garden of love is green without limits ….” Rumi

Heavenly Delight

Today I passed by and saw
your gate was closed,
you smiled from within,
and I determined to walk
the path to your door,
to touch those lips that smiled,
look into your dreamer's eyes,
and browse your garden of
heavenly delight and wonder.

“Things taste better outdoors. And if it’s a forbidden thing, so much the better.” Franny Billingsley

Did I Dream It?

I cupped your breast and
supped your lips beneath 
the bowed table of rich plenty,
when the sky was open and your 
eyes invited me to worlds beyond
your sleepy smile, of dragonflies and
kingfishers, seeds laughing along
the air, did I dream it?

Sweet Pomegranate – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“I would eat my way into perdition to taste you.” Jeanette Winterson

Sweet Pomegranate 

Your flesh so firm and rubenesquely rounded,
much the colour of a red wild rose, though
less of the wild of heart and so hard to get to,
needing to grasped firmly and torn apart until
your womb surrenders a thousand seed of
your life-blood bleeding down my chin as I 
rake your inner flesh for want of more.

Across The Line – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Photo: wikihow.com

“In origami the first folding should be done very well, so that the paper can stand.” Kazuko Horiuchi

Across The Line

O how I love your folds,
across the line I go 
following the very crease 
of you, sensing your
essence, holding your form,
seeing your true colour as
we fold and refold, not 
knowing where, or that 
there is, was, a line, now
blurred, lost in each other,
all the while emerging.

Drawn On Love – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.” Paul Klee

Drawn On Love

He looked at her long
recognising the stirrings deep within,
he took his pastels and stroked the
paper gently eliciting form as felt,
but something lacked, and his 
movements became more urgent,
frustrated with his chalky lines
he stopped and reached out,
touching her.

“The dawn of beauty always comes after night.” Sorin Cerin

I Sigh For More

Sweet dew upon your lips, your hips,
I trace your skin and brush your cheek,
my eyes are filled with all of you,
my cup is full, our love flows over and over, 
now rent by curtained slivers of dawn,
you rise and I adore then soon you are gone,
leaving me with memories, my fondest, 
the gentle calm of your breathing,
I sigh for more.

“Brevity is the soul of lingerie.” Dorothy Parker

Chemise Me

She wrote with her eyes
and painted with her movements,
short strokes, long strokes,
she sang in low soft silk sighs, 
her wisp of pink sent invitations
like tremors of an earthquake, and
held my breath as bated as she
coloured my world chemise.

Full – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Nothing risque, nothing gained.” Alexander Woollcott

Full

She was divine and 
I wanted to devour her then,
she read my thoughts with 
a smile and invited me to sip,
but I drank her down in full
draughts till the juice ran
over my lips.
