Stretch




Shutter
your eyes
to any sight


Blank out
all the shapes
but one


Point
your nipples
to the sun


Arch
your long back
to catch the


Light
or preferably
the eye. Now


Look
into the distance
but do not


See
anything so absurdly
close to you


Whisper
not the words
he wants to hear


Hold
on to your
own dark thoughts


Smile
the contemptuous
smile.

A select few know who the subject of this poem is. The image of the lizard sunbathing in Puglia ia a convenient add on many years after the event in question. Now that I'm back on line and almost in the correct time frame, it seems a good point to remind you that 4 poems are now on YouTube and can be found at the following addresses .....
