So I've moved on also, on to erotica. It lasts longer. And as you know, I've recited poetic erotica at local open mic nights. At my first reading, I felt the audience --mostly men-- hanging onto every word, as excited tension simmered throughout my reading...
I love and fear you just the same.
Your candy corns scream out my name.
I made as much eye contact as I could, and saw expressions like this:
so I continued...
Let's nail down this dreaded task
...And score and score until the dawn
We'll lick and chew til candy's gone.
We sat across from each other, eating yogurt and chatting. Igor's a quiet rambler, and it took work to understand him. But even when I heard his words, I failed to comprehend.
"I'm moving," he reported, "so I should get going soon."
"You're moving? Where are you moving to?"
"No I'm not moving. I'm moving things. I have a lot of work to do and stuff to move around."
So, yeah, I'm not interested in Igor. But he seeks me out at open mics, rubs my shoulders and calls me "honey," as if we're an item. Perhaps he believes I wrote lines like this for him: So hold it out and let me see. The big, long ones work best for me. Could he be that confident? At any rate, I'm trying to make contact with others when I read.
I've one rule, though. Make no mistake.
If it's not wrapped, I won't partake.
Some men wouldn't get the double-meaning there.
I'll read and post Halloween Erotica III, The Climax, later this week.
In the meantime, have fun and be safe.
Halloween Erotica, the original.
