EASING INTO A CYCLIC WORLD-LIFE
The girl shall settle down -
to a life mostly mild -
with a guy she works near,
with him and his child.
So knows the messenger
who carries the gypsy's words.
As mad as March hares,
as wild as the birds
the girl shall think him
when he is to relate
that before she was born
he knew of her fate.
Her fate is to slip
into the shoes of another.
Her fate is to play
the role of a stepmother.
Her fate, yes her future,
is there on Easy Street.
Easy guy, easy child and home,
easy shoes upon her feet.

A DEPARTED SWAN MAIDEN
Her spirit goes soar like a swan
over the green hills of Albion,
across King Arthur's Avalon.
Will soar into the setting sun.

PANDORA POEM
You were my muse
but now no more,
I have the god Janus
to guard my door.

He looks both ways
to see you come,
he looks both ways
to see you're gone.

He sees the good
and bad in you,
and it's the bad
that rings most true.

Yes you were my muse
fallen from the sky,
you were the apple
of this poet's eye.

I gave you space
and too much rope,
you're Pandora's Box...
just free of hope.

A-VAMYRE-LORD-AND-LADY-VERSE
Gargoyles, mist
and mystery,
Gothic cathedrals,
dark poetry,
a lady vampire
she was to me.

A lady vampire,
a beast unchained.
A lady vampire
I caressed, I tamed.
Yet Lady Vampyre
find left me drained.

Gargoyles, mist
and mystery,
Gothic cathedrals,
dark poetry,
a lord vampire
she made of me.

UNCOVERED
So now you are sorry,
sorry you're caught, of course.
I see no real regret,
no sign of true remorse.
Found with fingers in the till,
caught with panties down.
You and I are over, discover,
wrong-sider in this town !

A BANQUET IN HER BOUDOIR
After you, my dear lady,
through the door to the feast.
Yes after you, my dear lady,
beauty before the beast.
After you, my dear lady,
I will walk behind
looking forward to the banquet...
my mouth on your mouth find !

DON'T  LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT
The Shadow knows -
or so, girl, it goes -
and your-own's-in-the-know.
'Young woman needs aid',
you're like-an-old-maid.
Just let your aged-secret go.
You are no virgin
but you need urging
not to play the prude.
The shadow knows -
or so, girl, it goes -
and your own is rude.

LONGEVITY VERSE
Gain eternal youth,
you may have to lie
should a girl give you
the glad eye.

Two hundred years old
and she twenty.
Oh you old rogue
with youth a-plenty !

WITHER NOT LADY ROSE
What a witch-woman !
Nose like a hook.
Warts and wild eyes,
deadly withering look.

What a witch-woman !
Beware rose-flower.
Wizened is envy
this witching hour.

A FAR-STAR INFLUENCE OR NOT
You do not think, girl,
astrology to be true,
but the starry-portrayals
are all around you.

PROFITING SPIRITUALLY ?
Arrive on a bicycle, yes,
leave with a chain of cars.
Find non-materialistic gurus
can damn sure go far !

TIME AND SPACE
There are those would
to the past return.
There are others would
books on the past burn.
There are those would, too,
for a far-off planet leave,
and others who live in
a world of make-believe.

A-GYPSY-MADAM'S-MESSAGE
FOR-MINOR-ME-FIND
As the gypsy-girl said
when I very young:
"You shall be a messenger
in the long-run."

Yes I'm the verse-poet
she said I would be.
I am the messenger
as said the girl-gypsy.
