in the laboratory of my luxuria

I measure the looping arabesque

pulsing stamen and moistened pistil within

the granny knot of relentless reproduction

I must dawdle over my research;

not skirt all the allegories and illusionary data

clutching at those simmering passions; last

flowering; velvet dawn

{Sure you have wordled well into the future, Pat, but these words kept popping into my head, yet I could not form, as yet, a cocoon, a hammock, a resting spot for them as they race, bounce, rattle off the osteoporosised walls of skull:

monkey wrench; dust bunny; jejune; rowboat; goose-neck lamp; dementia; angst; vexatious; pernicious; mollycoddle; milk bottle; vermillion lipstick – why, I have no idea. I went to a creative energy workshop this afternoon and my mind has been spinning since.}
