WILL YOU

                                Now, 
		If I decide
		Suddenly, today -
	                The meat is overcooked,
			          the soup is stale
		
		Will you ?
		Will you leave your plate of dreams
		Tuck up your sarong, bare your legs
		and come and dance with me
		Cutting your pink, delicious soles,
		Soft and pretty, pert, petite
		Tingling soles of dimpling feet
		On broken, jagged, ragged shells
		Strewn across the yellow sand with tales as deep as the sea

		Lest the cat
		The cat in yellow collar
		Lick up
		Your plate of dreams

		You will not  
	                take up the chalice to empty it
		Nor see the trickle fall on sand
		parched yellow sand and still run out

		To the cold and mighty ocean
		In hopeless gurgling streams
