Be

I can be your man.

Tall, dark, and handsy.
Magicked up as midnight.
A doorway to the dawn.

I can be your woman.

Brothel born and fancy.
String you south like starlight.
Suck the skin right off your bones.

Don't matter to me
what you want me to be
as long as you be
mine.

I can be your dog.

Panting just to please you.
Roll over on my back
anytime you say.

I can be your cat.

Curling round your legs
and getting all familiar.
Twitch my tail and strut away.

Don't matter to me
what you want me to be
as long as you be
mine.

The best song Randy Newman didn't write. Excellent.

MZ--Have you submitted to the 91-word memoir contest? You do such phenomenal things with just a few words. Think about it if you haven't already.

Fireblossom said...

Fuck ME. You write sexy better than anyone else I know. "suck the skin right off your bones"? Dayum, woman. I'd be yours every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

That was a fun feather bed poem, mz. Spot on as always, but i'm not sure it would work in the real world.
As ferris buehler said of his pal,
"ya can't respect someone who's always kissin your ass"
But the honeymoon would be interesting! Ruff! Ruff!

happygirl said...

Ummm, suck the skin right off you bones. That's HOT. Just sayin'. Don't completely lose yourself, girlfriend. We'd miss you.

Claudia said...

Very erotic-and flexible, too. Nothing like a little role playing to warm things up, and they are definitely warmed to metal-melting temps here.

Nico said...

Thanks for stopping by my place and leaving such a kind note. If this doesn't raise the temperature a bit, you're not breathing. "Brothel born and fancy." That hits it squarely. Good writing!

Should be fun to be playing different roles, turn up the fun and sensuality ~ I see that bones is really your fav word ~

Laurie Kolp said...

This was so fun and entertaining. Thank you!!

manicddaily said...

Ha. A Blues (flame) song - cooking with gas. k.

Kathy Donlan said...

I really love the playful sensuality!

kaykuala said...

There's so much sacrifice that one has to put up with. It's worth all the pain as happiness is often reciprocated more than what's given. Nicely MZ!

"Brothel born and fancy.

So ... do you wanna go get coffee first? ;)

Love it, MZ.

Your writing just keeps getting better and bedder all the time! This is so damn great and I agree that it should be lyrics to a song. What an accomplished piece.

Susan said...

I simply enjoyed this song! I don't even care that it does matter. Just for now, pre-promise, to win the prize, the narrator sings the changes well!

I think I did the exact opposite in "Exposed hearts and iron wheels"--so opposite that it is related. Thank you for continuing to read my blog!
