Nightshade trance

Bounce me honey, shake me well
sell me darkly all your ways,
sway me. be my black-hole sun,
stun me slowly, tickle-touch me, spin
sins of me with silk; then let’s tiptoe,
know our scents in flesh; let’s swim
brim-filled with your nightshade trance.

The Siren by John William Waterhouse

Today (Monday) De hosts the Quadrille at dVerse. As usual it’s 44 words exactly and one of the words has to be bounce. Join us at 3 PM EST.

  1. Echoes of AC/DC and Soundgarden in your chain poem, Bjorn!
    The lines that really grabbed me are:
    ‘stun me slowly, tickle-touch me spin,
    sins of me with silk; then let’s tiptoe’.

  2. I love imagining that the speaker is a hot cup of tea talking to real honey that’s about to drizzle itself in. Then the silk would be milk.

    Gorgeous title.

  3. Wow – This is dark and delicious – reminds me of the song of the siren luring her lover into her melody. Finding sinful bliss…

    I enjoyed the reading as well.

  4. I love this! this is spectacular “be my black-hole sun,
    stun me slowly”
    no one thinks of black hole and sun and so perfect for the love for someone one ought not to love, for someone dangerous and you know it, drawn to a femme fatale — very film noirish and very cool

  5. I love the way you read this:

    “stun me slowly, tickle-touch me, spin
    sins of me with silk; then let’s tiptoe”

    I first misread “stun” as “stain,” which I also like … “stain me slowly.”

    That’s a great song … “Black Hole Sun (Won’t You Come).”
