My Muse Relentless

My Muse Relentless                    




my muse is upon me relentless
he is the shover
he pushes and pushes me
and twists my body
with demanding caresses
my juice is not enough
nor is my sweat nor my fear nor my longing
my muse is upon me
and won't let me rest
we are coupled and gasping
he is the elephant in sky
he is the  grey whale
i see the many teeth in his mouth
his full lips are parted
he does not bite but thrusts
me in another direction
turns me around and then around
applies me to his largesse
and wipes me with his generosity
he is what i asked for
he does not kiss but clutches me
i think i want to sleep
his tongue is in my ear
he fills my nostrils
his scent stronger than  incense
i cannot shout him out
he flicks his tongue across my nipples
i can only sing him in
my muse is upon me
he is what i asked for
but he doesn't always visit
i have learned to make do in his absence
i keep a good kitchen
i have appliances
my muse is upon me
he is bigger than i thought
he drives me through pleasure and discomfort
he stretches me
i am dazed
he wakes me
my head reels with  this insistence
i want to scream but  others are listening
the silence drives the passion deeper
my mouth is open
my ears stuffed with the roar of his many voices
he is here
he is here
i try to accommodate him
i wrap my thighs around him
arch my back and
write
