Elizabeth the Third





I’ll be Montgomery Clift

I want a smoldering tryst

I want your molten Bliss


You’re Apollonian Lift

And Dionysian grip

Make others meaningless blips

Inconsequent asterisks


Your sardonic quips

Are like Keith Richards Riffs

You are the female analog

Of Mick, the queenly demagogue


When you stalk the stage

We can’t turn the page

You are incarnate rage

A locomotive’s gears engaged
