    In her psychedelic sarong,
    the bride beat feet to a beach bar,
    dragging her new hubby along.

    She tugged on him, pulled him just far
    enough to see where the sky meets the shore--
    and, there, they kissed---as one never to part.

    Guests in leis raised Mai Tais to toast before
    the couple edged towards the coconut coast
    framed in yellow hibiscus at the door.

    It was while in volumes of Poe engrossed
    that I found myself in tune with a dream
    as real as any daytime dreamer's ghosts

    But, unlikely as it would seem
    When I returned (at last!) to Ogden Nash
    I found that they did share a theme

    Purple dress and white shoes clash

    Swimming through the water midnight black
    gooseflesh pimpled with each swift sure stroke
    with the full moon riding it bare-back

    Haystack rolled out to be dried
    sat wondering how is the sky so blue
    before it was about to be tied.

    In an utterance of stark untruth,
    the weather pulled back and yielded
    afresh fledgling morning dew.

    but the dewy apple's fresh appeal did
    nothing for my existential thirst
    so i am throat-quenched, and yet i feel dead

    My final draft stands proudly o'er my first,
    yet shrinks before the greats of ages past,
    my best a pale shadow of their worst.

    both the knees were either scuffed or grassed
    on any pair of trousers I could find
    I dressed for church, and mother was aghast

    Some would like to think me unkind,
    but I prefer ferociously honest--
    Perhaps then kindness is all in the mind?

    I call it as I see it, astonished
    at the rampant disregard for candor
    cutting to the quick; short, sweet - as promised.

    I stand in the vestibule eying the manor,
    it's hung with fine art, has a roaring fire;
    I try to walk softly and not stir up rancor


    (ugh, candor was hard for me. )

    A full-length Venus in oil stirs desire.
    Candles cast shadows and glint in her eye.
    Cherish her frame and her bid you'll acquire.

    One day, I'll be just a regular guy...
    the poet no more than a dormant dream,
    and in my fading age I'll find a new pastime.

    One day I'll fulfill my ultimate scheme:
    to look out the window and dream all day,
    take my words for a ride and float downstream

    With purpose in heart and smile full of beam,
    she sees each car as pods of energy.
    She rubs her belly and longs for ice cream.

    misery warms to mystery
    and close calm attends a cup of tea
    but leaves: a ring and sodden augury

    Ashamed of her predictability,
    she patches the shadows under each eye,
    clocks into her virulent entropy.

    modesty's a poke in the poet's eye
    a tongue craves texture: nipple, scar,
    and elbowed syllable - your ear knows why
