Errand



Curiosity killed the cat.
Satisfaction brought her back,
Down the road and up the track,
That's where I'll be waiting.

Autumn stole from Summer's shells,
Reds and pinks and silver bells,
Run the woods and hide in Hell,
That's where I'll be waiting.

Shame the Devil, make him sigh,
With seven truths and seven lies,
Then come to me, sweet Love of mine,
You know that I'll be waiting.

Lightning is a little tap
That splits the tree and burns it flat,
A kiss is nothing more than that,
So kiss me, little Kitty.

Tell your man you're fetching cream,
Then jump the fence and come to me,
Truth is what it needs to be,
So dark, so quick, so pretty.

I usually hate rhyming poetry.

I don't hate this.

Do you ever write songs? These could be lyrics. I imagine a Chris Whitley-esque guitar accompaniment.

Senorita said...

This poem is very suggestive. Either that, or I am just in a perverted mood.

That is a hot pic though !

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Love the repetition, the suggestibility, the metre and the humour.......I have never met a poem of yours I didnt love! Great writing.

Neva Flores said...

Love this!

Scarlet Ily said...

How can she keep you waiting after a tribute like this? This is one example of why your poetry works for me and all others fail.

I love the sensuality in your words, the flame it creates in my own heart is amazing..I have missed you and life has been weird, but...it goes on thankfully and I have your poetry to feed me.

Much love muchacha...

You're talking my kind of language, loving the hint of seduction and sensuality here :)

I'll admit, I came for the picture... but I stayed for the poetry. Great stuff, Shay!

TALON said...

Loved the rhythm, Shay. Lyrical and magical...I doubt little Kitty will be able to resist.


"Lightning is a little tap
That splits the tree and burns it flat,..." Saw that happen to four trees in a row once...have been terrified of lightning ever since.
