Gimme More

Venus and The Sailor, 1925, by Salvador Dali via Magpie Tales



I'll dip you
over the
edge
of the universe

breathless
then stare you
down
like Brando

catching then
dropping
you in time
enough to fall

clinging
breaking free
then chasing you
down

hiding
in chains
a fugitive
on the run

seeking
willing
to give it all
up

you're nothing
more than
a shiny 
thing

glistening
after the tango
as i leave
hungry

heart
of a hunter
forever wanting
more

  9. And that's the way to leave them... always wanting more, two steps short of satiety.Oh yes. This will keep 'em coming back, or wishing that they could.

  10. A game in a dance it seems. The words seem to read in a waltz type of rhythm. Interesting and much enjoyed.

  11. The rise and fall of the dance...and then the music ends. A life story told in 3/4 time and fine verse.

  12. I've said it many times. It's the reason I read you. You are the most sensuous poet I know of.
