“INSPIRATION!” a poem, a.k.a.: “The Basement Story!” March 25, 2019 (Moon-day)
Skin touching skin touching skin touching skin!
I am just crazy! for-you! LET ME IN!
I-just -wanna-be-CLOSER than I can recall,
She locketh-ed the door, then I THINK that SHE “coached,”
ME IN THE WAYS OF SUBTLE(?) ROMANCE!
She sat next to me and she said: “Wanna dance?”*
And-“HAVE-YOU-EVER BEEN T H I S-CLOSE – TO-A-GIRL BEFORE?”
(uncomfortably long pause)
BUT, SUDDENLY, INSPIRATION WHISPERED TO ME,
That-I-should-say: (whisper) “YES,” but-then, un-ex-pect-ed-ly,
Get REAL CLOSE, with skin touching skin!
“BUT-I’VE-NEVER-BEEN-‘T H I S’-CLOSE!” Then-The-Maid-let-me-in!
Into HER HEART!*** She-was: my-sweet-dream-come-true,
But, now, Dear Friends, here is a-moral for you!
A MORAL-to-the-story! about INSPIRATION,
[Even-if-all-your-friends-applaud “your in-itiation!”]
For: “YOU CAN-BE-TRICKED WHEN INSPIRATION IMPELS,
YOU TO GET CLOSE!” Can-you hear wedding bells?
Ding-a-ling-ding-a-ling, SKIN TOUCHING SKIN!
Lovely, pregnant-mamas, in “the basements of sin,”
Like to entice – all-the-boys with their “wares!”
INSPIRATION-MIGHT-“STRIKE!” But-is-it the-answer-to-your-prayers!?
* – or it could have been: “I-like-your-pants!”**
** – PANTS: perhaps what I was wearing – OR – the sounds I was making! It’s unclear!
*** – Well, for gosh sakes, what else would it be? mmm?
