In Chelsea the French Kiss like Ballerinas
Kofi Fosu Forson
Vanessa for the years. A caption would read—Disentanglement.
Leg of it predator supposing an undertaking come up from filth,
Like laundered sheets after menstrual cycle. Ninotchka Madam,
If in a garden, tulip or else demoiselle. Heartbreak, his command.
How it roped her into coil. Pull he did a thread. She and this Toro
Charged along thundering streets in twilight. Egoyan with camera
Would have kept up, followed them side-winding. Romantic push.
Hubris and harmony. Sex and politics. Many an intrigue begot a
Controversy. Lands apart. Those years. What she had accumulated
Served him best as dissertation. In those closed quarters, leaved,
Grassy, wild-bushed with trees over wine, conversations. Hint at
Chiaroscuro, lit glassed-candles reflected whiteness, Klimt’s Vienna.
Darkness. Hallowed country, a city governed by theft. Night’s reign.
Howling voices at pitch discernible as prison gore. Measured path
To door. Trajectory gave him impulse to have at body, enamored.
Rapture of which brought them close in a kiss. Arabesque. Chagall.
Autumn is the soliloquy in between pillar positioning of spring and
Winter. Summer, the fuck or fight scene. That it was, acknowledge-
Ment, touching of gloves or assuming positions. Somehow perfor-
Mance merits a juxtaposition. Inherently their tremulous indecision
Matched the circumstance of him making an exit and she bargaining.
No longer put asunder, one evening after bad cinematic experience,
They formed figure on bed in so many ways. Master class having
Culminated, partaking in sensations from roast, a serenading then.
Where most exacerbate and terminate, theirs was commencement,
Love indefatigable. Parisian neighbor, “Avec amour! Avec amour”!
