S&R Poetry: “Angel Lust,” by Michael C. Rush

the pedantic romantic
his somatic compunction
his chaste waste

the static charge of arousal
is just that, static,
without the impetus of action

the semiotic semi-erotics of
formative fornicative experiences
mislead without falsehood

impulse
spurious vaginal angels
petrichor to mithridate

shamanic shagman
caress a rough flesh of lump and crease

Michael C. Rush is made very uneasy by the influence of biography on poetry and prefers that the reader consider his poems alone, on their own merits, as words, without indulging in whatever small, idle curiosity about the specifics of his background and life that they may feel.
