Print Save Become a Fan
Naked in the back seat
of the really roomy car with its double-wishbone suspension
about to be put to the ultimate test.
“You look better undressed,” he said,
he himself undressing for success,
preparing to carry out his carefully-orchestrated debut.
“I’ve got the lotion,” he announced, holding up
the tub of peach-orange-flavoured curdled milk
(intoxicated by the selection!).
“Use just a little,” she said, and he smiled:
“Why indulge a little when you can indulge a lot?”
And saying thus, he emptied
the tub of peach-orange all over her nude femininity.
Yoghurt on the run! It ran amok!
All over, all over…
as she whispered in drunken jubilation: “Any two randy fools
can create a life.”
This was written after a Creative Writing workshop, during which we were asked to select interesting phrases at random from a magazine. Some of the phrases I chose were incorporated into the poem: 'really roomy car', 'undressing for success', 'randy fools can create a life', 'why indulge a little...', and so on. It's not so much about relationships, I realise, but they didn't have 'erotica' as an option! :)
