Her, not Him

William H. Mozal III 1975 (Florida)

Her, not Him

she radiates joy - a starlight dervish dance
the trespassing tree … uprooted - yields to

Venusian garden bud, sprouting
a fresh flower, blooming
Her, not Him

Her, not Him

on my dream bed, skirted, seated, sheer hosed,
long legs freshly teasing

unshackled, new curves cleaving
ivory sleek, virgin-shorn thighs trembling,
Her, not Him

Her, not Him

in my night castles, in my dream sheets, silk bed curtains
her writhing, screaming, pleadingnaked sweat, our thundered hearts beating

reality rises - unrequited affections,
those lip glossed smiles for HER,

not HIM

Her, not Him
Her, not
