Colin James – 2 poems

 

SAND EYELASHES, SALT SHIPS

Sophia, I bought the LIFE magazine for its cover
and rolled it into a mask,
my eyes popping out of your tits.
Thank you for fucking me so thoroughly.
Your attentions were like an abstract pearl.
Diver due back about now,
with cleavage, unmistakably.
But who is that little man at the stern,
and is he even capable of driving this thing?

 

STRETCHING WITHOUT VERTEBRAE 

A Nostradamus pubic hair  
is being preserved
in a golden vial
at the Louvre.
Who knew there was
a house even, illuminating
or a life being lived.

 

Colin James originated the current trend of wearing pajamas outside the home, and is currently in negotiations that may plausibly reward everyone concerned.
