Slumber casts a spell, driving deep
Steering me through an abyss steep
Sound of drip-drop raindrop fades
Down opaque pools with louvered shades–
Unknown dreamscapes drift in a haze:
Zooming an Old Flame past Time’s maze
Queen Of My Night leaves her imprint,
Musky lingerie and memories in sepia print.
Choking pangs vent pent-up sighs
Flaunting desires for long lost “highs”
Cupid’s arrows stir a nightlong binge
Valentines turn pink a-blushing tinge
Boarding wrong trains I journey without tickets
Disrobing damsels serenade condomed pickets
Bare-All Stage-Acts give me stage-fright
Yet people don’t notice my nakedness bright.
The stalking thief is out to steal
I shout without voice, frozen in steel
Air-dropped suddenly on Hyde Park East
Water cannons and molotov cocktails bother me least
Eluding brickbats I am on the run
A motley crowd is watching the fun
A sudden baton charge switches the scene
Land of Canaan is blissfully seen.
Dead father’n’mother break manna in heaven
Sharing God’s Big Bonanza on Channel Seven
Ethereal screen now flickers and glows
Shooting my sortie a flak very close
I keep baling out, my parachute fails
Dancing Houris cast away transparent veils
Viragos’n’Amazons gesture an obscene threat
Ending the Wet Dream I break into sweat!
