Sligo, Ireland 2003.

Red Lipstick.

 

Standing in reverence of a mighty giant

his Nobel words remembered, this fan notes

 

exaggerated bat-like shoulders enhance his

thoughtful gaze – watching the Horseman?

 

Others have stepped up on Galway stone; held

those long, thin legs as they balance head bent

 

to leave a lipstick imprint of their awe for him

on the space his left hand nonchalantly indicates…

Roadside E30, Co.Cork, Ireland.

 

Fetal naked at fifty.

I’ve followed signs to Yield in Ireland

when I’m used to an Aussie Give Way

 

I put on red lipstick, tell you stories

of Africa when we were both young

and watch my words seduce you again.

 

You remember young Chianti;

full and round, ruby red, peppered

with berries.  I remember

a Hotel in Kitwe – Blue Nun. 

 

You say your taste has matured,

you now prefer an Aussie Shiraz;

sharp, punchy, still youthful

– allowed to ripen with time.

 

I imprint your palate with my being

so no other will satisfy – am absolutely

involved in strong pulsing waves.

 

You suddenly stop

and fold my legs over

so I lay fetal naked at fifty…  

 

you lean forward to whisper

my tongue is sweet.
