Sunday Poetry with Gypsy Woman, Jenean C. Gilstrap. Today: The Bounty

Romeo and Juliet kissing in a painting by Sir Frank Dicksee.

Romeo and Juliet kissing in a painting by Sir Frank Dicksee.

the bounty

emerging from his deep abyss

the slimy serpent raised its head

he sought her out upon her bed

and with a hiss and lingering kiss


upon her breasts he dared to feast

for her life he cared the least

he searched for her in times of need

to satisfy his own love’s greed


on her bosom he did suck

in a lustful frenzy all amuck

into her beating heart he did bite

with all his vigorous might


his tongue embarked to do his will

until at last he’d gained his fill

but what he could not see

through his lascivious glee


beneath her bounteous flesh

was the bottomless hole

of her stone cold soul

where his own heart she would enmesh


what he sowed so did he reap

as he gurgled his last in her blackest deep

for his dying soul she did not weep

in her he had found the primal beast

Jenean C Gilstrap

Since childhood, Ms. Gilstrap has had a love of words-of writing and other arts. An individualist, she chooses not to follow any pre-conceived pattern for the outlay of these words – rather, she allows them the freedom to forge their own path as they make their way from her heart to pen to paper. Her art work involves both photography and mixed media on large canvasses. She is a weekly featured poet in Yareah Magazine where her works have appeared for more than a year. Her piece The Granite God was the winning poem in Painted Bride Quarterly Sidebar #12 [2012]. Her work has been featured in performance poetry theatrical productions in Louisiana and her short story, Retribution, published in the Helicon Literary Magazine there. She and her gypsywomanworld blog are included as character/story elements in Ghost Key, the fictional work of award-winning author Trish MacGregor. Her first volume of poetry [2013], words unspoken, is available in both paperback and on kindle at amazon. She currently divides her time between her home in Louisiana and the east coast as she completes her second volume of poetry to be published in 2013.
