(in praise of pinups.)
a pensive man, baring (oceandrops)
propped on himself
relaxed amidst a storm
of stormy twinkles and sizzling skin of
oh! the sigh and the plea! but silent, squinted. beckoning&emdash;
who stole my dungarees?
a righteous man
an image of justice
sprawled upon hell-fiy-ah
neva look so fine (so fine) a
preacha preachin' sizzle-be-GONE! with-a hes suit hes
hand back left flat-out threat'n: sin be-GONE an'
da bible da brimstone under-sure! he-ll cometh
and ah-be-golly taketh them (offa ya too)
swingin' pants towards sunrise as
little children cry
semi-revealed man, blemishing man-sweat
on the manicured beach writhing at the
(phlut) hand on hip, angular
twisted, Gumby legs flapping
seal-like but anchored-flung
forward like two eyes
his: small, sneering.
