Inter-Galactic Delight (a Poem for the Valentine's)

Paul is an Engineer. A graduate from a Catholic University. A rebel and a romantic...


There's a comet in the sky
It’s calling my name.
Inviting me to play a game;
A game we can try
Outside the orbit of shame.

I reached for the comet;

Begging it to reveal the secrets kept in a locket…
I touched its tail...The tail is burning...The tail is moist!
Ah...the feeling I'm yearning for!
Come bring your fiery tail to the dance floor;
Let's play the game you told me before;
Stain that white linen tied to a hoist.

We danced in the red corner of the sky.
Don’t care if Halley and Sirius are passing by.
Our rotation so ecstatic that Orion lost his belt...
Our revolution so intense the Big Dipper and Little Dipper knelt.

Then we jumped from moon to moon,
Slithering over the rings of Saturn like crazy baboons.
But then it came too soon,
The Aurora released its lights;
Ending our inter-galactic delight.
