voodoo kisses

porch light midnights
your voodoo kisses
drifting in the fog to
french quarter sidewalks
walking on the ghosts
of southern intimacy

antique balconies with
green wooden shutters
half shadows of you and i
sweet handmade pralines
floating on a cypress stump
walking on water for
a taste of you

casting your spell
with your chicken foot wand
you melt me into
the mississippi delta
pour me out on bourbon street
dancing in your trance
seductive velvet hips

speaking the language
of the mimes
i stumble in your stare
a riverboat gambler
with a tarot card hand
tempting my fate
in your eyes

misty moonlight dust lines
cover your seductive curves
take me with your erotic flair
bring me back home

the creaking of the front porch
drowns me in its painted glow
mosquitoes buzz
as i taste the flood
the ruby red lips
that are your voodoo kisses

    Real fresh write here. I am personally a sucker for 'fogs of the french quarter,' and 'muddy water of the Mississipi delta.' The specific details of imagery really brings this poem to life. Well written and enjoyed reading every line. Chris.
