Sucking vigour


Old man summer
craggy brook beds his veins
parched skin cracked
fissures stretched moisture lost in pain

His fingers curl around velvet buds
squeezing youth plumping his flaccid river
flowers wink as gnarled limbs droop
a zephyr shakes off sweaty wings

Decadent virility licks peeling lips
a roe quickens within redolent spring
a whirlwind fling a swansong trills
an old man in the season clings.
