Rated XXX
by Raul Moldez

Now, decide by yourself, if you would like
to go with me in a journey to a new flesh.
I want to know your decision right now.

But before you do that, consider these prizes:
Fair share; tender love and care; sweet romance;
And a luscious aroma of passion and yearning.

Let me tell you I seldom sell myself with
these offers. You may or may not grab it.
So, decide right now before the stench of loneliness

Envelops my body, renders my bones unmovable,
Leaves me bald and bequeaths me with the retiring
Stars, dementia and yellowish afternoons.

A day in a poet's life

Directive

Executive order

Floating in the air

The unbaptized eyewitness of a stabbing incident
interrogated by the cop at the precinct
