THUNDER

Eprobles-poetby E.P.Robles05 Aug 2019

[Stanza 1]
I DID NOT know your name when we met on the train
destinations like ghosts who have lost their bodies
Onward we road the rail with thunder and destiny

[Stanza 2]
each way station a detour from malaise - save you
your performance of attitude and cashmere shawl
escalate an effect upon me - fluid movement

[Stanza 3]
Here comes the revolutionary woman - neoclassic
hair worn natural, loose and flowing fashion
the wealthy Parisian takes the Grand Tour

[Stanza 4]
diaphanous soul keeps my bitterness at bay
you count the clackety-clack of our path
red lipstick and smoke swirls - the eyes say

[Stanza 5]
In the evening red fire across the horizon
trees and promontory - raise the glass of red
in my dreams I dream of a tender path - you

[Stanza 61]
The conductor shouts - all aboard left may stay
we two - the only ones, a glance and sensuous grin
fall back upon leather bench and teach a lesson

[Stanza 7]
Roles of feminine persuasion turned upside-down
at odds with social reality - you squeeze the fruit
the devil may care tonight - we ride the rail of destiny
