    "...and as I speak I am also listening"

    those words swirled above my head
    before touching my earlobes...
    and there they hovered just outside
    the threshold of my mind,

    words...pleading with MY WILL to gain
    entry ...MY WILL,
    which was standing pat
    against the door
    of my understanding
    like a Roman Centurion

    I hadn't really heard a thing,
    with the exception of that one phrase,
    although
    I knew well how to
    play the listening
    game...

    other sounds had long since
    seduced all my senses
    and I had been engaged in
    illicit pleasures all evening

    mentally masturbating,
    if you please

    I certainly was...(pleased)

    and the euphoria was so
    sensuous, so tantillizing,
    so mesmerizing
    I never noticed when the speaker,
    who was also listening,

    left the premises

    I was pleasantly surprised when I stopped to read this poem and then re-read this poem,
    this poem with such teasing sweetness.
    Therefore, I leave this simple missive to convey my appreciation and add my salute to those who've stopped here before me and partaken of this fruit of you.
