Loose Change Rattling Around


Loose change rattling around
Persnickety characters coming fore
I’m not beautiful, but I won’t drown
Pick your fantasy, I’ll be a matador
Wear your heels or maybe the corset
Shore leave happens but a moment
Let me remember you in this portrait
Tie you up, make you beg for atonement


Painting Portraits



Painting portraits

Back when ships had steam

Of the Marquis de Amour

A rainy day’s sunbeam

A lingering adieu

Let’s not make tonight a waste

Impeccably undressed

Please grant me one last taste
