Pantoum With a Twist 

A poem by Anthony G. Herles

Her husband's picture gives her heart a throb
.....Old passion gives her blood an instant twist
His suit shows off his young and thin physique
.....Which gives her skin a tingle and an itch.

Old passion gives her blood an instant twist
.....His smile arouses memory of a tryst
Which gives her skin a tingle and an itch
.....Remembering her anxious need some time ago.

Her smile arouses memory of a tryst
.....Of her soft touch and quick and eager kiss
Remembering his anxious need some time ago
.....Desire for life and love and passion's goal.

Of her soft touch and quick and eager kiss
.....He feels lighthearted and his knees go weak
This photo of their past gives both of them a throb
.....They understand their instant blood rush as a twist.
