Cruise Ship Entertainment

By Rp Verlaine

Cruise Ship Entertainment

She never sweats
tied to a spinning wheel
in glistening spandex.

He does not miss
as far as I see
the knife thrower -- an artist.

Much later
I dream of her spinning
while I throw kisses.

Wishing I was young enough
for dangerous games
outside any rules.

To unduly excite her
not that anyone would know
smiling like she does.

During each performance
a fatal mistake
awaits its chance.

To bow to fate
awaiting her blood
to claim victory.
