Lifting a Glass In Loverly Salute
A barbed tongue
of a clever man gives defense
a man in love with his tongue
hath built a fence
letting no one in
here i sit and here is the gate
to old jagged's heart
a pleasant place
immune to the cold
where She touches me
and makes me warm
keeping away the shadows at night
knowing from which and where I come
giving a hand and word of comfort
liquefying this heart of marble
till all wonder if it were not icecream
in reflection of this gift I salute her sex
who give to those
tired and full of care
a spark of something to keep us going
and fond memories
even when not there
a toast to you of the fairer gender
a kiss blown
before sappiness makes it trite
as I sit with my love
making memories in the night.
