MAGPIE/ Prompt #97

TODAY WE CAN SALUTE MARILYN.....an invitation from Tess at Magpie Tales. 


Hey Joe, it's what I do,
I turn the infra-red on
across the universe.
Even interstellar dust
can't obscure my game.

Did you want me
to round the bases with you,
when restless hands
keep reaching for
my effervescence of desire?

What book did you have to open
to find me?
I don't live in words,
but in the space
between your eyes and mine,
a cocoon on my way
to metamorphosis.

See me flying by,
a chrysalis,
exuvium crumbling,
A Monarch butterfly.

last stanza is amazing

Lyn said...

Hi Suz-
That was her problem, I think..having to keep moving on..she never won, except to last forever!

She was so tortured, so complicated ... I don't believe any relationship could have lasted.
