Three Poems//Larry Blazek


YOU ARE AMAZED

 

By the tattoos your new girlfriend

Has all over her body

She takes you on a tour

as she removes her clothes

what really startles you

are the cabalistic tattoos

upon her scalp that you see

when she removes her wig

 

 

 

 

 

                                //

 

 

 

 

 

ON A WHIRLWIND VISIT

 

 she stuns you with her beauty

dazzles you with her metaphysical rap

disappoints you when she says

she is your spiritual mother

she points out while disrobing

the mother thing is not physical

but it only makes the anguish

of her parting both physical and spiritual
 

 

 

 

 

 

                                //

 

 

 

 

 

THE FRIENDLY WOMAN

 

Is a front for a gang of thieves

While you recover your tools

from the trunk of her car

at gunpoint

other gang members

surround you

your gun does not have enough shells

to shoot them all so you shoot the leader

with a tiny pistol you have

concealed in your sleeve

not hurting him too badly

but enough to maneuver

to keep them from surrounding you
