And I tasted...

I met a man
Who took out his soft blue eye
To look at me

He held it aloft, above the music, beyond the hypnosis
And from his distance saw my power
Brushed my wings
Touched my love’s edges

He hovered then over my lips
Leaving that faint moist fig taste
To savour

And the possibilty
Of a forbidden midnight feast

In the scheme of eternity…a flashed moment…

    So few words, so beautifully crafted, so many images to savour. Are you famous yet, and if not, why not?
