Busta Rhyme, Bitches

Dancer
in the shape of a vowel
shakes her ass hip to hip
Twist of the tongue
slip of the lip
She’ll date you
hate you
lure you into a story
where there is none
Dazzle your eyes
beneath
erotic
rhotic
or the roll of it
She goes stag with the frags
hand-in-hand
on the crest of nothing doing
She laughs
and slings her head back
as the bra twirls
round a finger plot
though naught
All naught but random pickings
stuck divine
with a smashing
flashing
clause of liquid nails
On her knees
she crawls
inches from your smile
pulled ear-to-ear with
Frantic clusters of consonants
teasing round a pole of
sequence
Feigning grace in each bead of sweat
on the brow
of he whose tongue
tastes the mouth of
the catacombs of dead dreams
fallen sour
where the fairy tale
should be.

  1. I'm not complaining because the writing's bad ass as usual, but shouldn't you have used a Slash song here like Mean Bone to companion your other piece about your hair?

    great stuff, Goddess

    1. I knew someone would say something about the appropriateness of the song ;-) Why would I choose this one when there is something like Next Girl by the Black Keys? Or Big Bad Handsome Man by Imelda May? Or ANYTHING by Carlos Santana? Hook just fits. Trust me. It fits. It's all in the words.

  2. Well, this definitely hooked me and did not let go. Had to pick my jaw up off the floor. What a ride of a poem!
