After Thoughts

When he kissed my nipple

          I felt elbow bone thrill–

When lips touched my belly

          Tickle ran up to my ear

When he took my cock head to tongue

          a tremor shrunk sphincter, joy

                    shuddered my reins

I breathed deep sighing ahhh!

— — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — —

Mirror looking, combing

         grey glistening beard

Were I found sharp eyed

         attractive to the young?

Bad magic or something–

Foolish magic most likely

–Allen Ginsberg

Jabberwocky

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

          Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:

All mimsy were the borogoves,

          And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!

          The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!

Beward the Jubjub bird, and shun

          The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand:

          Long time the manxome foe he sought–

So rested he by the Tumtum tree,

          And stood awhile in thought.

And as uffish thought he stood,

          The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,

Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,

          And burbled as it came!

One, two!  One, two!  And through and through

          The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!

He left it dead, and with its head

          He went galumphing back.

“And has thou slain the Jabberwock?

       Come to my arms, my beamish boy!

O frabjous day!  Callooh!  Callay!”

          He chortled in his job.

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

          Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:

All mmimsy were the borogoves,

          And the mome raths outgrabe.

–Lewis Carroll
