dream cense

the sky vapes with clouds
stars flicker like ciggy butts
i try to recall
everything i mooned over
but nothing comes to my mind

nothing except for
‘And know, whatever thou hast been,
’Tis something better not to be.’ *

* Lord Byron, ‘Euthanasia’

Aelita’s Lullaby

On that foreign earth,
the blood of kings adorns you.
Magic and mayhem.
Heaven’s net cast wide
but never shall it tame you,
my wildish red queen.

The universe plays,
swirls like a toddler’s mobile
above your cradle.
Planets are ranked like
Fabergé eggs on nightstands,
my red crested queen.

Morpheus pets you
in your cozy martian cot,
in regal repose.
Oceans and deserts
hide like dreams in your lashes,
my weightless red queen.

Hear this, my heart’s song.
Croon shall I so soft for you,
wayfaring out there.
I ride my rocket
to venerate your pink toes,
my red harken queen.

last may

It’s pretty strange to realise that the person you barely knew yesterday occupies all your space today. But they never ask. They come, grab your guts and start dancing a jig. How cool is that? (This is a poem Tony wrote for me.)

Вензель

my dance surrounds you
my stoic one, pole to pole
yours is love that lasts

Вензель_нижний

Wow… I’m really moved, Tony! (Psych! Pole dancing definitely isn’t your schtick.) Anyhow, I love you.

leying on of hands

I was lucky enough to meet Tati here on WordPress just a few short years ago, and ever since then we’ve become thick as thieves. And from time to time we’ve even written each other little poems and things. This is Tati’s latest…

Вензель

i thaw in your arms
debouch into the heart line
coalesce with you

Вензель_нижний

Wow… I’m really moved, Tati! Thank you. I love you.
– Tony
