still hot (pointless)

after that intricate fandango
during which you turned
and twisted me so well
that the mirror threw back
a stranger’s face
i threw away my dancing shoes

i’ve just about closed the book on love
my rewrites are no good
no new juice
each chapter just more
of the same old song and dance
the tune offkey
the dance that damnable fandango

so bye bye love

yet i can be sitting still as a stone
silent
thinking nothing in particular
and your shadow
slips inside my mind

my flesh moistens
then melts
because that flame
a neverending peat fire of pointless desire
burns on
