Strictly for Men (well...not all)

With pears and peaches and melons thus stacked
With fair, cream and brown and such varied shades
How should I not be distracted and feel
As bees in an orchard in spring?

Unseen in crowds, my veins humming still
I steal a few glances and measure through my gaze
Shapes that'll birth my Madonna on tracks
In these our office-leaving times.

Count me not pervy and trust the dear chef
Who loves the new teasers with lipsmacking grace.

The "bee" line reminded me of John Laroche talking about pollination as love-making.

Dreams on the train from real data...sounds like inspiration for poetry.

Dear Asteria, there are 2 things to note: there's such a thing as a disinterested perception of beauty, however sensual, especially if seen from an artist's perspective - pygmalion was a sculptor and here the speaker may be a painter(madonna on tracks alluding to madonna on the rocks); my poems are NEVER autobiographical as the emily dickinson quote in the blog suggests. so all's well in my world and many thanks for your consistent comments :)
