Callipygian Swagger

She’s so much more than Mother Earth
with sun and moon about her girth;
a goddess in the underbrush
with skin so soft and hair so lush.
I’ll caress her in Orion Beta;
she’ll shower me with sweet amrita.
It will begin when I unclothe her
and finish in a supernova
Some folks they think that I’m a nut;
seducing God ain’t easy but …
I’m pretty sure I’m gonna bag her
with my callipygian swagger.


Callipygian is an adjective that means to have beautifully shaped buttocks.
