Until you’re satisfied

I will wait for you in a bayou

Where I am requisite and unrestrained

Auxiliary to predation

A consonant with the feral ecology

Bemused with the libertine prose 

Of sweltering tides

Of sheltering fugitives

In utter defiance of purity

A confessor to the preference

For total annihilation

Consoled by the throated sadism

Of wayward osprey

Captivated by all manner

Of antagonism

A lust submerged in vicious stillness

Bind me in boughs of Spanish moss

And I will lay for you like wetland

Spread open across the hellish waters

Mired in the muddied graves

Of jane doe’s and oldsmobiles

And when you finally return to me

I will tongue the scales

Of the cottonmouth

As needled ferns whip my back side

Until you’re satisfied

    1. Charlie. My sweet friend! Your reactions are always *my* favorite. Thank you… this was such a rich landscape in my head as I wrote. I could actually taste the humid air and hear the bullfrogs crooning! I’m so glad you could see what I saw. ❤

      1. You welcome, April.

        Getting inside your mind would be something to study and understand the imagery of how our synapses function and the imagination takes us into that creative journey.

        You’ve blew my mind away and for that thank you. Bullfrogs have a very interesting way about them cute creatures but never mess with a bullfrog.
