Lust lasts until a lasso twirling

Elizabeth Taylor by Frank Worth, 1956  "Giant"


Don’t get irritated by the sound of disclosed door,
allow the bliss,
invite the triggers/signals to ignite an appetite,
even wear sunglasses to provoke a sun,
imagine flamboyant jumbled garden
with flowers and veggies,
‘cause this is a point -
re-tire the car,
lust lasts until a lasso twirling!

  6. I think this is about playing too...and I love the idea that if we put sunglasses on the sun will come...it's all a state of mind I suppose! :)

  11. Firstly, "disclosed" as against the more common word "open". Secondly, "wear sunglasses to provoke a sun". Really caught my eye. Loved this. Well penned.
