An Appropriate Poem for the Day...

Maybe it's not allergies after all and I've caught Ben's cold.

Bitter Sweet Siren
Hers is a voice that sounds like Kathleen Turner
on a hot summer night as she speaks to her lover.
Warm honey over wet sand, but not sticky sweet.
More like the rough touch of a cat's tongue
as it affectionately grooms you.

Sexy with its paradoxically soft and hard sounds
that make you want to hear more -
Never mind what her voice is saying.
Though, the right words are icing on the cake.

Too bad this voice only comes to her
in the bleakness of unwanted illness.
Cruel in its tempting call
while her body is too weak to respond.
