    masquerade in black
    mystery packed as dynamite
    tightly wound
    the ladykiller plays the shill
    music dines as only wine
    can send the chill of the thrill
    up the spine of his latest meal
    who bats eyelashes
    caked with pretty zinc flake
    and her cheesecloth dressing
    like a sieve the killer believes
    to sift through her decollatage
    of mussed blonde wig and taped breast rig
    years older than the rehauled chassis
    champagne and cigars clink
    glassy glass stares
    masked with college tries and barely suppressed irony
    dark and tan and bland
    laughing but can barely stand
    the musk of her aged tusks
    viper quick, bends like a whip
    and lifts her up
    serenades her
    with physical displays of youthful age
    meanwhile counting the coins in her pocketbook
    enough to take a look
    at her dry dusty cave
    the bats circling
    feeding on the remains of a marriage of slaves
    swallowing his disgust down his robust throat
    he disrobes her of her coat
    and salivates against her wall
    admiring the rugs and the paintings
    and the filigreed gold and velvet trimmings
    while he rummages through her chest
    and checks her fillings
    she cums in seconds
    he has time to play thoughts in his head
    he will never say
    a conquest of vices and disguises
    alone they rise
    catching a cab, the mystery man
    like a slab of bacon mistaken for prime rib
    in the light of dawn the old shrew spins
    wondering if the sword she swallowed will ever call again...

    Love this one... reminds me of "Killer Queen" the song... lol by Queen.. ha. Definitely a risque and raw look at things, with a very Romantic spin on it. :D I like it

    Amadeus a strong leaning again towards a classical style of words...I love the complexity of words formed into vision. I idea of Hamlet's expressions come to mine. love it...good work.

    I cannot give you a long, detailed comment but what I can do is support you and that is exactly what I am doing. All I can say is that I do enjoy reading your "poems" and know that there is talent there and you are putting it to good use.

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
