Muore Lentamente

Helpless, as she muore lentamente,

I feel her smile roaring back

Like shutters freed in tempest.

She is a honey-peeler,

She is moje dzieko, a Lazulitopian

Spilling from pockets

Posthumously wrung.

I chase her blue eyes

As they swing from

The Gregorian Tree.

Chirping merry, my desire is makisig

And I haven’t the means to resist.

Listening to her jabber

I have reason to believe

That the seas are drowning,

That the sky is screaming

Free of vestment, free of nudniks

And gnarlers, free to gorge

Upon its infinite sorrows.

Without loss one cannot

Comprehend their errant sweetness.

If it were possible I would drift

Behind her breasts

Listening to the sound

Of her mad blood passing

Through the sluice of her heart.

I am red with envy, could she be?

But she isn’t mine and as she drags

Her final breath from the grave

For safe-keeping I know that she

Has never belonged to any man.

Though he be malakas or rich

He cannot calculate her worth.

I have been working on my CV today and it has thoroughly drained me. This wordle was tough and I am unsure if I used the words properly.

  1. Well, it’s a fabulous write, as always. I especially love that envy was “red” this time, for surely, I’ve seen evidence of heated envy… Take a rest, dear heart–writing a CV would exhaust most people.

  2. I’ve read this several times, and absolutely adore it.

    These are my favorites:
    “She is a honey-peeler”
    “Listening to her jabber / I have reason to believe / That the seas are drowning”
    “Without loss one cannot / Comprehend their errant sweetness.”
    “Listening to the sound / Of her mad blood passing”
    the last three-and-a-half lines

  3. We can not own anyone else – though so many try.
    That we cannot be bought or our value estimated – to some can be threatening. I think you used the words very well.

    Thanks for your visit to the pot I stirred 🙂
