Angie

Into the room came Angie

with flaxen angel hair
golden breasts
timeless hourglass motion

She floated not walked
glowed and glistened
She much chiseled from some
goddess delight fantasy

that held
every and all the men
dumbstruck dumbfounded
undone and much numb
when they (of all times)
would wish / would want
would worry what to speak?
They – Breathless
to be more fine

But as she neared
(they turned twelve again).

Angie had oh so fine lines
Cleopatra pursed lips
ambrosia scented hips
it is said she smiled and
doors would open themselves

Angie:
was placed here as a
heart breaker, spirit taker
and much a dream maker

that made the men-boys
cement footed and numb.
Unable to whisper a nothing
towards her

Her breezing by smelling of deep musk,
(they turned twelve again).

Watching
Angie of flaxen hair
went of her way

smiling and knowing
what she had done.
