it's not even a
conscience effort
on your part
to tempt me further
with that 'Dead Sexy'
way about you
its not even your
physical looks so much
for it's just so much more
Yeats would claim
it's your pilgrim soul
but I believe too its
more so the you I've
always known
that shines through
lighting up this latest
ordinary vessel
you've come to inherit
it's in the eyes
it's in the set of the head
perhaps even in
the particular way your heart
I'm not so sure even I can say
but for me it's the entire package
the seen and the unseen
that reacts to you
and feels you are
a marvelous collage of a man
full out 'Dead Sexy'
right on the spot
and I can't take my eyes off
of you
crazy as that sounds
it's the truth as best as I can
tell it.......................
