Popping Pearls (2010)

Cages and bars –

Cocktails swimming under diamond mirrors,

Cages and bars –

Rattling against glistening mascara eyes,


Cages and bars –

Dancing hips hypnotising every glance,

Cages and bars –

Crying through baby blushing cheeks,


Cages and bars –

Tuxedo creatures erupting in camera flashes,

Cages and bars –

Clawing at the lock of sewn sensuous lips,


Screaming behind irons, swivelling blond curls

Around her neck, left popping pretty pearls.



This is old but perhaps one poem from my teenage years which doesn’t make me bury my head in my hands.
