Brilliant, beautiful, rich
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Poet for his time. Unread!
Hated by all who knew
His atheism, adultery, amorality,
Savage satirst; seducer of gullible, brilliant
Sixteen year old Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin his
Adoring lover, perfect companion and genius.
Percy, Mary and Byron came together in
Switzerland. They lived, loved, lusted:
Loving, passionate, drugged lust-
Competitive, creative, intuitive lust-
A menage a trois of lust,
Super- charged, transforming lust. And
Mary explosively, erupted with
Quiet listener: intense unlimited
Broiling, boiling, swept up beyond the
Here-and-now; beyond this world
Images of a new dimension: Frankenstein!
Her genius transformed the world
Frankenstein a metaphor for all times
A metaphor for life.
