The Jewel Box


Wraith escapist

Pandora’s mistake

That shape-shifting fox

Smoke slithering like snakes

On the stairs . . . searches

For the Gatekeeper

Clay model of chuckling sin

This jewel was born golden

Oblivious to iron fences

Rules or locks

Curiosity’s little sister

Knows the lid is always open

On Jewel’s box, broken

Hinges squeak loose

Shriek and cackle, tongues

Waggle, then dive deep

In the cave, roll and rock

Through the belly of the Earth

Dance madly, make volcanic music

Beat-sweeping the caverns of hope

Love erupts sky-blue down

There, everywhere, even the Cheshire

Cat is moved to cuddly-grin

In the lap of Jewel’s smile

While the accidental fears

Huddle and glom, beg every

Frown and pestilent ear

To listen, to return to the dirt

The ground where Jewel picks a daisy

For Pandora’s hair

Lightly kisses both her eyes

The Gods’ gift-curse, our mouths

We wear wild this day

To celebrate our lives, this time

With her . . . we smile

Because she smiles . . . yes

It really is that easy

Even the Key-master

Drunk on ridiculous laughter

Revels in the presence

Of Pandora’s shy giggle

And blushing striptease

Down to her birthday suit

(Who needs cake or ice cream!)

For a skinny-dip plunge

Into the echoing slipstream

Of Jewel’s breast stroke breathing

Drafting joy tickled wet

That kicking wake of horse-laughs

And horseplay, a pool party

Birthday, dripping eyes

Splashing thighs, the jewel box

Emptied, keyless, spent

Completely out of control

And Pandora flips her lid

For the fucking fun of it

Becomes the Fates

Failed undertow
