Her Modigliani Neck – kyoka – September 17, 2014

Her Modigliani Neck (kyoka)

stretched out
as she watched the bats
fly in the driving rain …
so subtlety white
her soft Modigliani neck

my heart beat quickened
ah –  that silent temptation
(caress me my dear)
begging to be ravished
I, the Count,  could not resist

(Kyoka is a form of Japanese Waka poetry … dedicated to humor, very popular in the late 18th and early 19th century.)
