alea iacta esto

Stygian Oaths

See the boy, standing in the window
Absentmindedly, or seemingly so, twiddling red hair
Crested tufts peeped between sylph arm and roseate chest
Impaled, there I was, hopeless nympholeptic cur

Cupid, you wicked cunt
By Jove may you be banished, arrows and all
Expelled, beyond Parnassus, beyond Olympus
Beyond the Styx

Hoary Stygian oath I swore
“No porn, no porn” I roared
But not tonight. Tonight
The pretty boy with the pubic red hair
Stood naked in the crooked window
