One speaks of her auspicious gaze,
the many facets of her all-embracing,
and in the same moment, penetrating glance.
In every aspect I agree, all parts of her form
are addressed in one hymn or another,
whether carved in marble, in wood or in sandstone,
whether painted, or in paean sung,
or embodied in dance, or costumed staging,
and be it Grecian or Roman or Tantra with bindu:
in all these depictions I hear
of her eyes, her lips, her arms and her thighs,
I see in the art how robust and alive
those breasts can be, and those sweeping hips,
a turn of the neck just so,
the feet with the anklets . . .
and yet . . .
And yet and yet and yet:
what is missing, but that I sometimes
may catch it – no, rather
be caught by it, yes, caught up!
Such that every fibre of my all-too male being
can barely bring my tongue to sing
to that which it longs rather to touch,
to meet most intimately there, and lose itself
in that place where hair
may also grow, and the form and the shape
of this, that Goddess' armpit, unsung, unsung!
It is not unfair, it is alone intended
for me to discover, as I had with such yearning
from earliest of memory beholding her form.
The erotic statement of it cannot be spoken,
there is nothing in the literature giving mention,
it is for me most privately, intimately, erotically winning
her approval so, for me alone to go there and to know it.
It is a world and an opener of worlds, as there are
many gates to her erotic majesty, this is only for the seeing,
bestowing its aroma – ah, yes, laugh you world,
and remain bereft of this particular blessing few of us
can appreciate, and appreciating thus
with finger strokes and tongue and eyes
full of desire and homecoming
there in the cleft of it,
spread for me, inviting, open and sovereign,
sharing, laughing, cooing, surrendering
as with no other door, there
beloved, beloved nectar of scented
perspiration, completely natural,
intoxicating beyond any words, please, no words!
This tongue is not for words here, but for surrendering,
as every male part of me is ordered to this attention
The smile of her mouth is enticing indeed,
but still more so, is
the Goddess' armpit.
