Montezuma's Bride

An idea for an interesting conceit that came across me after some inspiration.

Montezuma's Bride

We kissed ten pills in the lot by the bar
and we drove, you and I,
numb and starstruck in that car.

With windows down we turned around,
Radio locks to open sails and knees follow
V6 engines, legs on pedals end in rudders.
You shuddered my name.

Vintage leather shoes harnessed quivering
wave crests at gales' best.

All the while, unfurled wings, seagull's swirled
regal maelstrom paths between our eyes.
Feeling out old floor mat star maps, with our
gangrene feet, gaining wind speed and toe traction.
Gutter punking drunk, afloat
in Moon and Tide attraction.

As Lunar winks elucidated
were-passions, fashioning
intimacy from practical infancy,
I felt a Spanish chill serenade
my waterfall spinal column.
Trade-winds trading flamenco chords


and forth

across Cortes's course.

Among dewy jungles,
Aztec jaguar headdresses
fall away to reveal
amphetamine bed rest,
night sweating for its next meal.
Hunted in celestial fever
weaving deep among
spiraling genetic ruins.
There, at celestial pyramid union,
Montezuma fought
a holy ancient primal truth,
then flowed into our long sought
fountain of youth.


Conceit, Jungle
