Cat - Black

Poem - Drapes Pulled Back

The poem “Drapes Pulled Back” is about the dirty trick that the drive to create offspring propagates on the nature of attraction.


Drapes Pulled Back

If the mystery were removed
drapes pulled back to show the sun?
a revelation on the other side
of promise made by lust’s dreams

that hunger sourced from the hidden
imagination feeding vision veiled
behind protection of the sacred
it’s for the best if you consider

would attraction retain it’s pull
when the portend has been killed?
those gentle hints of what may be
cast aside by wantonness

with results the seen as before
revelation echoes a bitter laugh
in a hundred other vistas viewed
the breadth is seen once again.
