THE OBJECT OF OUR INTERCOURSE by Duane Vorhees

This diet of salsa and meringue 
weds ricochet to boomerang, 
wrecking ball to rocking chair. 
Arquebus quells harlequin 
as balsa envies the hickory 
and will urges the unwilling. 
Where cutter’s bow ignores the buoy.
Like orangutans with the palsy 
We do that salsa and merengue. 

(My proud mother ego muse wanted me to make a lyric that was silvery articulate, wanted me to create music that was wildly meticulous; id wanted to make magic, a heroic playboy image with a song instead that leered. – Duane Vorhees)
