Bubbling perineum

By Louis Cortese 

I came across

a house of souls

singing songs

to Shiva June.

They danced

and moved

they shook

the womb,

Inside the Om lyceum.

I absorbed the tune

and shed my gloom,

my gaze turned in

and felt the yin

in my bubbling perineum.


A master imp

across the room

his head tucked in

below the moon

The princess blonde

in her sacred nook

sat down with us

and read her book,

chanting quotes per diem.

The forearm stand

the toes so grand

meander up

the darkened land,

of my bubbling perineum.



and her sister Dee

contained their smiles


Aligning love


their formless forms

adorned the wall

in yoga’s art museum.

Curvaceous Joan’s

undulating spire

is sweating beads

of raw desire

from her bubbling perineum.


Floorboards creek,

bright eyes seek,

wise men know

but will not speak

Of fortune found

that has no bounds

whose message sounds

a call to all

to the hatha coliseum.

As crowds balloon

inside this room

heads decked out

in an downward plume

to the bubbling perineum


Disconnected, a bit affected

they walk on clouds

of well respected

Tall and shapely

they glide past,

way above a lower caste,

they of the gilded cast,

bow their heads

just to see them.

Crustaceous bones

produce loud moans

chanting Oms

a bit like drones

from their bubbling perineum.

About Louis Cortese

Lou , in his life, has been a precocious young boy in an anachronistic town in the mountains of Sicily, an immigrant at the age of 8 arriving by way of an ocean liner to the shores of the west side of Manhattan, a guido from the Bronx, a hippy, a Zen Buddhist, a businessman, a yogi and a conventional family man with three sons and two grandchildren, among other things, none of which describes his true self and all of which in the aggregate do not give a full account of him. If his story is not he, then what is? He’s still looking.
