The Top Summer Read Topless! --

The Shocking Exposť of Saucy Lard Bard's A Rural Habitation and a Dame  
The Blurb Superb To Deep Perturb  
(plus Sleep Disturb)  
Yet But the Classiest of Columnists Cheeky --  
The Inimitable Laidi Lei Bare  


"Miss Summer and Miss Dawning early rise,  
accompanied by Fancy and her fays,  
as off for Hidden Treasure Pond Pint-Size  
all liltingly go waltzing long to laze --  

in elegant bikinis spun of air,  
a hue invisible of naught to rue,  
and gossamers of not a single care  
insured to never melt into a dew --  

the latest quick trick slick by punster Puck,  
who banished for a prank by Fancy's rule,  
squats dour a dunce elf-deep beneath a muck  
in mushroom cap upon a large toad stool --  

in fear he may a trickster troll corrupt,  
or lizards lounging in chaises longues straight taint,  
since ripping off bikinis might disrupt  
the Bard -- who treasures hid prefers to paint."  


a paean of Respect  
for †
the airily Ethical Principle of summery fairy flesh †

a revolving helios column quatrain me - nip - pean satirical on †
the "Clvin Kein" tricks of a rude mechanical's cockney imagination †

june, 2023 -- still the most popular midsummer read among children and changelings  
Fantastical Fays Antique on Antic Bottomless Asses

Summery muse

When golden orbs of sunshine    
kiss your window sill † †  
and sunlight enters † †  
like divine floodlights † †  
and warms you up softly † †  
glinting upon your knick knacks † †  
and the decor then shines † †  
like glittery sequins † †  
you know † †  
it's time you stroll to the sunkissed beach † †  
and let sand and sun combine † †  
in olden golden shine † †  
for holidaying kodak moments!! † †  
Trees offer a background of tinsels † †  
A sunshiny backdrop for snaps[b]
† †  
But in tropical places † †  
the heat of the summer † †  
can also be a real big bummer![/b]
Swimming pools a lucky escape
from a scorching parched landscape.

Strange disappearance

A Summer Mystery †
For a few weeks Lucy will occupy †
Her aunt's cottage by the beach, †
Glad to get away from the city's congestions †
She loves the setting †
Perfect for her type of paintings. †
It is while thus occupied, painbrush in hand, †
That she meets the handsome Bryan †
Yet a few days later his picture †
Is on the front page of the local newspaper †
Disappeared. †
Nobody knows what happened yet. †
But the ladies at the Black Swan lodge †
Seem to know a lot †
But are not saying much
Mostly silent and over a huge pot mixing brews
Lucy befriends Judy and becomes a member
Of this exclusive club
Where wizardry seems to prevail
Yet on one wall a Templar's Costume and sword
Strangely out of place
Among woshippers of the Devil.......
Will she be pleased to have been selected
To be part of this group?

Stuck in Duluth

Of Madmen and Humpty Dumpty
sitting on a wall of broken embryos
with no time for the truth, but,
seeing Alice through the looking glass,
stuck in Duluth †

No time for recollection, but a tattoo fits.
Wondering if Jesus has a sleeve of art or
is that hypocrisy? † †

Hermaphrodites in my mind's candy store, †
dinosaurs and Cheetos playing the lotto
on a disconnected, not-so-smart cell phone,
masturbating to a picture of Dinah Shore †

No pen nor candle among sodomites, †
just a fleeting shadow of The Torah
lusting for Burma-Shave cryptic pencil
watching reruns of †Paladin, "Have Gun-
Will Travel." Still stuck in Duluth.
