A Predatory Perspective



Seductively she fluttered lashes as
eyebrows arched; a gruesome sight to behold!
Her heavy sigh dropped from her laced 'kerchief
while bloated architectural visions
swept the young gentleman into vomit;
sickly-sweet flow which scented passion's hair.
 
Structured orchestrated notes pressed against
senses; characterised by Europe's theme.
The dance roamed ghastly personalities,
romantic notions bled ornamental
language, it writhed in curls of suggestive
fragrance; atmospheric twirls which stuttered.
 
Blushes wept furiously underneath
his make-up, but he bowed down politely,
spoke with temperamental social flutters.
"Regretfully mademoiselle, I must
decline your invitation for I have
an important engagement to attend."
 
Her disappointment slithered between thighs;
sticky with courtesy's respectful heat.
Quickly he was dismissed as her gaze leapt
musical performance; considering
who to victimise next with her beauty,
a predatory perspective laughed love.
