Skeletal Romance


A delusive piece of garden affair hampered

Their eyes like the facade of a black bat

And the rosette of their bony bodies slouched

Into each other in a fairy tale of romance singing

And dancing fire on a bare floor of joyride craft

In a triangle motion of emotional entanglement


The convalescence of Sodomy in the air shrouded

In the aroma of sedimentary seduction of skeletons

Married wild wind of eroticism and amativeness

And cowed mind vowed to dwell in the den of iniquity


The bony beings laughing dangers into eulogy are

The epitome of modern romance erecting villa in the sky

Their hanky-panky and gut reaction jingle insanity of vibes

To the whore-house of softwares and hardwares dancing.
