The courtisan's hips swoon

To the tune of a soft summer breeze.

An umbrella twirls in the sleaze.

Cat calls,

Entangled cobbled streets with market stalls.


neath a sky blue sapphire.

Heaven lives above a ruby red pool of desire.

Blood drips from her lip,

its from being bit.

her nose askew,

she's being hit.

Yet her eyes burn a powerful emerald green,

 a hanging Babylonian dream.


I am but a stray 

let's live day to day

lay with me until the first flowers of May.
