An artist as a guest
at a five star dinner
decorated food’s delight
for eyes will stir one’s appetite
and hustle life’s juices
Delicate tastes enhanced
in a Bohemian atmosphere
with animated talks of travel:
Lesbos Island to Spartan love
An artist spouse in cinematography
will spin his projections toward art
and show his cinematic collections.
The hostess returns the inert love
of the painting poet:
her physical imprint leaning over
the shoulders of the seated artist
plays sensually on his skin.
Below his dark blue garb
there’s intimacy in communication
between words whispered
called out in verse
murmured into the ruby wine
they both share.
