Exotic Body Parts

In Dysarray

Top Story - November 2023
Things are easier when you break them down.

You say your anatomical snuff box

Cannot accommodate my proboscis

And my hairy glabella

Is not my best seller


And your lovely lunulae

Wave me off every day

All of your body parts, mundane and exotic

Are fuel for my drives, untamed and erotic


Inhale my seductive nostrum

Placed right under your philtrum

Don't deny the scratch for my itch

That persists as pruritic acnestis


You narrow your canthi

When giving me stink-eye

But paired dimples of Venus

Provoke spread of my genus


So why keep your legs akimbo

Just to offer me Limbo?

Perhaps your parts would be better

If they weren't so altogether


I could have a bag, for each part, titular

A collection of each part singular

And every very lonesome now and then

I could put you back together again

    How perfectly morbid. Remind me never to come near you. Ugh! Herman and Leticia Munster would be proud. Kudos TS.

    Well, you pulled a Star Trek. "Boldly went there." LOL Well done!

    congratulations on TS. This was brilliant.

  • Reminds me of one of my most favorite films May. Putting a friend together with different parts 😳 Very good use of language here

  • This was so stunning and biological! I hope that makes sense, lol. Loved your poem!

    Surreal, chilling and clever. I'm more clued up on body parts now too.
