Pastiche of paradises once pursued, chimeras
Simmer and shimmy, love's dancer desires.
In an era of boredom they glare from the shelves.

Our wanting all wanting by wanting consumes.
Desire's substance is fire, and desire continues,
A pastiche of paradises once pursued, chimeras.

Miss Mississippi poses and pouts blue allure as
We lust, Romeo baboons who drool for new Julias.
In an era of boredom shes glare from the shelves.

Kisses in a cave-dark hole we willfully dive in,
Drowning and hoping for anxious love's prizes:
Pastiche of paradises once pursued, chimeras.

Don't walk to their whistle or wink at their mirrors:
What's seen there's not seen, merely seen as.
In an era of boredom they glare from the shelves.

Fadeless as marshlights, they hate the actual stars.
It's fine that they shine, but not where they lead us,
These pastiches of paradises once pursued, these chimeras.
In an era of boredom they glare from the shelves.
