You Must Have Rolled Your Eyes...


you must have snubbed your nose...
you must have rolled those
priceless eyes with vigor
I did not mean to sound vulgar
I meant for you to simply taste wine
but perhaps
My words were wasted;
perhaps when I spoke
my lips were chapped-
and perhaps the booze
too, helped bruise
my well-meant lines

I carelessly broke
a precious latch
forgive me - the damage can be patched
my mouth gets me in trouble
my tongue is a subtle,
stuttering butterfly
that I can never catch

and so it goes...
- you must have rolled those
priceless eyes with vigor
I did not mean to sound vulgar
...but, perhaps
my words were wasted-
I meant for you to taste wine;
you tasted
vinegar.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
