Contradictions weave delight
through daydream wishes.
Balance light and dark on fingertips,
hot and cold, flipped and spun
a juggler's trick of white and red.
Candy cane fun. Pale innocence
deep bedded now with dark, wet lust.
No science here. No formula. No X+Y
must equal Z. Just fantasy.

Waltz onto that road for real?
Dreams die flat beneath laws' wheels.


I blog irregularly at TinkerX. I'm also on Twitter. @andyhavens, go figure.

Reads to me as a "conventionally married" person's fantasy of interracial sex, held back from fulfillment by vows of fidelity.

Having once been interracially married for a couple of decades, I would have much to say on this, if I had the time, appropriate space, and reciprocal interest.

I do like the fanciful images in your poem. It's got light, color, warmth, desire, play, and... tragedy. Even, I think, some wonderful smells are evoked.

Yes, I remember your other poem regarding tragedy.

Good one.
