Vinyl

 

placed on the platter

i reach for your tonearm

..

i’m your one hit wonder baby

i’ll spin faster, frantic maybe

 

in low light, dimly see

label blurred

giddy guarantee

when you play me

r.p.m 33

 

 

..

eyes closed, now listen

every lubricious line

Carla Bruni style, soft gasp

honeysuckle ooze, sublime

..

diamond stylus tips my grooves

undulating, rise my moves

do you like what you hear?

close your eyes…

hum me near

 

………..

before streaming, before CDs …. the raw analogue imperfection of a vinyl record spinning on a turntable. Tonearm, platter, stylus are all turntable components.

Suffocate

the creation

of this asphyxiation

relies upon the air shared

when lips are locked

inhaling exhalations

to hypoxic innervations

 

the stars you’ll see

blame solely on me

and my insatiable

oxygen depleting desire

 

after you whisper

sommergimi di carezze fino a farmi affogare*

I make the stars dance through celestial sparks

crowding our heaven

as we fall

together

through the crack of time

one single breath, divine!

*smother me with caresses until I suffocate

The Call

when the dusk daisies draw droplet dew

a breathless whisper

shall come to you

a gust of wind

carries the scented call

an enticing murmur

of forbidden enthral

 

settle your eyes

afire to the West

as I to the East

send your ravenous sunset

to fulfill my morning feast

let not the ocean whole

cool this languid burning

a bridge for souls now made

shall attend our silent yearning …

Aftertaste

for a time

i was your wine

 

at first young and fresh

and abundantly available

you wanted a dozen 

of this quirky Lambrusco

and I was delivered to your door 

 

but I wasn’t to your taste

you swilled me in your mouth

spun to glass rim

with subtle berry aroma 

abounding

and I 

stained your carpet

 

later…

 

bottles forgotten in attic dark

a seal cracked

from sentimental midnight lark

and in this first shadowed sip

a heavenly balsamic lust did spark

drizzled

and lingering

 

Golden

This molten orange evening sky

awash with thoughts of you and I

like treacle smeared on glistening skin

golden coats the warmth within

 

Herringbone patterned clouds on high

are ribs attended with soft touch sigh

as ocean rolls

wave upon wave

nature beckons

our hearts

to

save

Summer

come lay by me

withered grass bed at our backs

blue sky under our feet

grab me, when I say I’m falling ….

and we’ll laugh like children

for I meant “for you”

and you thought

“into the blue”

 

on this late August eve

while the  lazy bumble bees hover nearby

we listen to the frolic of breezes

playing leaf rustle games,

and feast on the plump blackberries

staining lips and fingertips

 

and

I am heavy with the season

heat, and longing
