Elizabeth the Third

 

 

 

Elizabeth

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
