“One phone call, that’s all it took.” Pierce Brosnan

Her Phone Call

Strange how the phone call chose me,
her voice was velvet chocolate,
so sweet and smooth like warm desire
that shivered down my spine.

Her voice was velvet chocolate
spooned on a warm summer's night,
so sweet and smooth like warm desire
transporting me to unknown ecstasies.

Spooned on a warm summer's night
we entwined in the delight of love,
transporting me to unknown ecstasies
higher than the highest heaven.

We entwined in the delight of love,
so sweet and smooth like warm desire,
higher than the highest heaven,
strange how her phone call chose me.

“The years are too short, the days are too long.” Joseph Heller

In The Crush

The day's tide elongated my hours
like thick, slow squeezed lemon,
the juice of a day in the crush of
a hand now flexed and dripping.

Like thick, slow squeezed lemon
with a mess of acid citrus down,
a hand now flexed and dripping
so much a tap of flowing water.

With a mess of acid citrus down,
the day simply drizzled along,
so much a tap of flowing river
along the moments so tart and,

The day simply drizzled along,
the juice of a day in a crush of,
along the moments so tart and,
the day's tide elongated my hours.
