Two Sisters of Genoa

Twin sisters of Genoa
sleek, fine, rich of breeding
Languorous, creating that feeling
of wanting to bed with her.

Old fashioned sisters
living in a new age
appealing only to those
who do not hurry and are slow of hand.

You bed with her;
you bed in her
as she takes you
to a land of dreams.

And you know you will remember
those halcyon days in her
though both sisters are now gone
victims of the new speed.

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    A salute to the days of the glorious liners, and nicely done, Frank.
    I am a poor sailor, so unlikely to ever sample a cruise. Even so, there was an elegance there that is sadly lost to us now.
    Best wishes, Pete.
