Photos and poetry 5 – Risk to the Heart
Story of a Hotel Room
Thinking we were safe-insanity!
We went in to make love. All the same,
idiots to trust the little hotel bedroom.
Then in the gloom…
…and who does not know that pair of shutters
with all the awkward hook on them
All screeching whispers? Very well then, in the gloom
we set about acquiring one another
Urgently! But on a temporary basis
Only as guests-just guests of one another’s senses.
But idiots to feel so safe you hold back nothing
because the bed of cold, electric linen
happens to be illicit…
To make love as well as that is ruinous.
Londoner, Parisian, someone should have warned us
that without permanent intentions
you have absolutely no protection
-If the act is clean, authentic, sumptuous,
the concurring deep love of the heart
follows the naked work, profoundly moved by it.

The lacy photos were taken by hanging the clothes in my bedroom window with the setting sun behind them to give almost skin tone..
