haha, can’t help myself.
Bad habits. Create oscillations
which echo as undulations
through the solar plexus
twitching whiskers
scenting liquid whispers
like lickeur chocolates in boxes
yohoho, come here, no
mercy this time
my dear,
said Sam Spade again in silhouette and some strange silken apparition
smoking under a streetlight moon dressed
in Aubrey Beardlsey perfume, mamu in limolimbo
you rolled and scratched and mewled most politely
then with great envigouration unencapsulated certain
corsets and discomplexified all meanings in
the most appropriate of contexts.

  2. Oh my, oh my! What a boxful of trinkets this is. Wonderful. (I’m resisting a witter about my Great Aunt’s penchant for cherry liquers as that would most likely be inappropriate…*ahem*) I hope everyone reads this aloud as they look at your words – it is a tongue twister indeed.
    An entanglement of tongues,
