Pretty Mister Piri Piri

Improbably named Luigi has skin like
dark chocolate mousse; its soft foam
looks like the mere touch of a finger,
would dent the perfection of his luminous face.

Slender, toned legs that push his body skywards
curve at the hip forming a svelte waist:
A woman trapped in a man’s body
he moves and sways with the elegance of a geisha
taking complex orders
whilst steadily holding your gaze
and beaming from the tips of his heart.

As you are leaving, but before
he casts his potent 'diner' spell on
new customers, he says:
‘Thank you for coming to Nandos!’ And you know, he means it.


I love the gentle nudging from the dVerse team, it works like this: here are some lovely stimulating ideas, new poetry styles and forms, now go and WRITE A POEM!
