for Juliette

for Juliette

the love I felt for you
waned as my lust waned

looking at you standing naked
at the sunlight window
throwing baguette crumbs
to feed the pigeons
(sometimes that squirrel)

I want to tell you
it’s all gone stale
but you are singing
a soft song from
your home in the Auvergne

walking to the bed
coquettish like Delilah
offering your self for love
and my mouth is stopped

must have been a very clever narcissist this woman, feeding small creatures, sunlight, nakedness and coquettish – twas a very sensual and intellectual trap. I may be wrong
