FOUR POEMS – James D. Quinton

pronouncements of love should be taken with a pinch of salt
they all say:
‘I’ve been told
I’m really good at it’
well, honey,
of course

when a man
has his dick
in your mouth
he’ll say anything

also
any pronouncements
of love
should be taken
with a pinch of salt

stars failed to shine tonight

dead fox at the side of the road
a dozen red roses rejected by a girl
uniforms for the uniformed
sharp teeth ready to bite
stars failed to shine tonight

shipwrecked on her shore
I write about her
sometimes
she’s a devil –
other times an angel
but always a lover
always a fighter

mysterious
she’s a chameleon
tapping into my desires
she’s temptation appearing
different each time

the red head
the brunette
the blonde
differing skin tones

I should forget her

but can’t

she’s a siren
luring me to her coast

to shipwreck me
on her shore

i.k.i.w.b.i.h.t.u.t.f.e.w.i.t.w
pleasure doesn’t start
because
these walls are too thin
dopamine
and
noradrenal
receptors
equal sin
breaths
on
breaths
skin
on
skin
enticed,
reduced,
slave,
cling
