Fancy Talk

Honeymoon honeydew
put a spell on me
some Haitian vodun
some djembe
some sweet bare bones rhythm

Pour your dreams on my skin
illuminate me
with ya fancy
talk sweetsticky
talk
speak my
language

The recession has me flirting on Twitter. I was so delighted that Constant knew the difference between a senryu (loosely styled) and a haiku that I proposed to him.  We engaged in a brief Twitter romance (brief as in 10 minutes max).  His playfulness stroked my muse which brought you the poem above. Listen to it below (Subscribers- it's on the webpage).



Check out more music from Constant that inspired the context.
