I must sample what you have to offer

 while in the residence of your dreams


your table is adorned with all the amenities

    I could effortlessly become accustomed to


  best are your ideas,

      choice fermented fruits

   whose body and color

   are intriguing and exotic

totally satisfying my synaptic tastes


and whose aroma

                           I would gladly get drunk on

        without becoming silly or obnoxious


                        for the fruit grown

              in the valley of your eyes

   are soothing, colorful, juicy skins of passion


          and I am introduced to a new décor,

                 to a quality extraordinaire

  so I think I’ll taste your entire variety


   then lie down in your lap

                and take résidence inside your dreams

What a lovely place to be Jude and how intoxicating are these fruits... this intoxication is called love. It reads as a song to my soul and sweet dreams to my mind.

there are moments and lines here, Jude, when the
Song of Solomon echoes; this work is both precise
and personal and broad and universal
and tender, oh so tender

To me this is more than sensual Jude, it is soulful and surreal.
Give yourself a hug, a high five or any other self congratulatory gesture you choose. You deserve it.

I don't know, is this legal, I mean getting there without being under the influence, watch the Fed's don't catch on to this, the DEA would most likely want to talk to you, this is way beyond Penthouse my friend, it's time to change the sheets, bless ya!

Consistent with the "botanicals" that I mentioned in review of "adornment" yesterday and the stimulation of your most dominant olfactory sense, this sends a message of the sweetest of communions in the Temple of the Gods, and whereas "adornment" gave the impression of adoration at the shrine of the beloved, this, in turn, seems to represent the Goddess stepping off her pedestal to minister the choicest of those libations left at her altar upon the speaker's own lips - a delightfully disarming touch that democratises the love union. Probably my experience of singing close to The Pantheon at the breathtaking Stourhead Gardens over the weekend colours my thoughts here, but this undoubtedly also has shades of your old Palette of Desires painted afresh in the rainbow of the Bacchanalia instead of the original monochromes of its grainy cityscape - the "Penthouse" Sage refers to, perhaps! You indeed have found your space, Amigo; time to move in! :)) xx

This Man-x kitten loves the caboodle. Snugly. Love the chance to pick the fruit of your brain to see how you come up with such consistent metaphors without, just barely, crossing the line to make me man the life-boats. Well done, Jude.

Hey Jude,

I like that you ended this on such a sensual note that brings this reader to the brink can guess what I mean here.

wow, another synaptic wonder from the master of the Poetic Universe.
