Trying to understand accentual verse. Footnote: Not sure I have it yet.
Something about youth.
A slurpee on a hot summer night
at the drive-in with you.
When being naughty was cupping a breast.




new word: glaze

I don't get dizzy at heights.
It's when we're both on ground
And you're below.

That's when I suffer vertigo.





Next word: Carnelian

cold hard smooth to touch
no phoenix for our love

New Word: forever

I thought it was forever
but who am I to say
when stars fall so easily?
Eyes that no longer shine
their passion spent
only reflecting my tears.

New Word: teeth

Never quite reaches the eyes.
Indicates an interesting evening.

Knowing gaze that holds the eyes
predicting all our adult lies.

happy the worm who's both husband and wife.

Was to be parallel with the sun

Sequence broke with the vase
backward through the door,
slid along hall fluorescence
but replanted every single daisy.

safe within this emerald moor

Fresh look sorts out my desire.
Seeing her feminine in a new light.
An anomaly? Not at all.
The woman was there. I just didn't see.

new word: heat


Thoughts of a day that is going to be way to fucking hot for me.

Heat was Chloe's undoing
we carried her in, she lay
panting at her Master's feet,
begging forgiveness with her eyes
such an old dog,
still willing to please.

New word: famine

New word: famine
He was jolted from his habitual reverie.
Latched on the imagery of the latest plea
for aid for some remote locale.
Recognized his gluttony of misery, famine of love.

New word: ceremony
We don't stand on ceremony here!
come on in to a hell of your own making.
Sure everyone wishes for heaven
but we throw the best parties,
how do you take your pergatory tea
one lump or two?

New word: abstinence

To chat with a stranger just for a while
Is the plan for self-will
Deception flows across the keys
Only abstinence stops the thrill

Too much heat to shiver but what the hell.
Snow drifts from boughs
weighted with winter sugar
frozen crystalline the river
cracks the sea shivers.

New: ennui

Fingers nimble enough with buttons,

Hope she doesn't come to her senses.
