Flutter in the poem that the orchid dreamed last night,
Why light up this fire that will consumme you?
And in delirium find you
Naked on the beach and without the slightest trace of shame.

Asleep in crystal love,
do you think you can squeeze the shaman just once more?
In jungle reveries you left your nubile witchcraft.
Memory was a bridge
Between virginity and womanhood.

Ripe blossom kisses,
Your swaying bridge above the precipice
How long did you stand there hoping for a light push
To hurl you into carnal oblivion?

You gave me the flower in your hair
Your breast alight in desire
Eyes behind the flicker
Of another Hollywood reel.
