Heaven’s in the Humdrum with You.
in your raspberry cravat,
in my ebony mood
(and nothing else)
hold onto your
(you’ve caused a melt down
in my core with
that lambent look).
Go grab your gypsy soul,
I’ll wear my long pearls, so thoroughly modern (please call me Millie).
Ride the banister into my arms
and out into the soft cloak of the cabalistic dark.
Let’s slide on in to the effervescent champagne air!
soak in the sempiternal velvet of this spring evening
where monochrome makes for mystery and magic everywhere.
Your lips are sweet liqueur, sticky Amaretto kisses,
my mouth can only leave yours for moments.
Together we make the jejune glorious!
Even pushing a shopping trolley is domestic bliss
when you tap dance down the aisles, tipping your hat.
As I reach into that simulacrum of the arctic for frozen peas
your breath, warm zephyrs on my neck,
is what gives me goosebumps.
Your touch dissolves the rime on my fingertips.
And commonplace cranberry juice becomes a
cramoisy goblet, rich ruby wine, in your elegant digits.
Skipping home, our portico beckons with jutting welcoming hand.
And my heart is a mottled canvas,
doubt daubed that the future
of what’s paramount,
