the spiritual man

does the best that he can

He watches

these women





they wear short jumpers

with thin silk shorts

and flash their tanned legs

at him.

their curly brown hair

dances in the air

their laugher

has no mercy.

the spiritual man

is tortured by these beauties

He watches them

like an entomologist

staring at their butterfly bodies.

He is the one behind the glass

they are free.

  1. What an insightful poem. It has open ended meanings… One can view it from the point of the spiritual man however the women also form an aspect of the poem… I am still trying to decipher the meaning of the poem.
    Regardless I enjoyed it
