Here’s a sneak peek at a couple of poems to start with from Joy Elizabeth and Evie

Red for Danger

She wore red.

Her breast flamed brilliantly

and the air hummed.


She sat in my kitchen

scorching holes in my safety net

but even in my molten form

I slid away.


I’m back now

my familiar figure shaped from memory

though the exterior’s fireproof.


Yesterday she sat in my kitchen.

The air was ordinary

and she wore brown.

I am a he-cat

And you my catnip

My aphrodisiac

Stretched out

Rolling on the ground

Languid and lolling

The hot sun

Melting my bones


The pungent scent of you

Smeared over my mouth

Wet and shining

As I nibble and rub


My whiskers covered in

Glistening drool

Play-biting licking sucking

I cannot get enough

Until your rain comes

Flooding over my face

Drenching my senses

Satiating my lust

Me the he-cat

You my catnip

“Releasing the Genie”

Front cover art and title of soon to be released Erotic Poetry Anthology  compiled by Evie Wood and Marilyn Arnold.  Featuring poetry from Marilyn and Evie and the Tasmanian Poetry Pedlars Community.  We were overwhelmed with the wonderful response from poets, so much so that Erotic Anthology Volume 2 is now being discussed.

From the soon to be published book – here are some sneak peeks of a couple of short poems by Evie Wood.

I’d like to……..

..make a square meal

out of your round offerings

he said

give me a morsel of

your tasty triangle

let me give you

hot cylindrical delights

as I lay the table

with you

my sushi platter

and me

your steak tartare lover

Fresh Pastry

i’m no lamington lady

nor cupcake cutie

no pavlova princess

yet my sponges never flop

i’m lewd lecherous

luscious lascivious

basically a take-away tart

with ripe cherries on top

LATEST POEM by Evie Wood

The Colours of My Love


Red blood pumping
Brown cinnamon scented candles
Smoking hot
Body perfumes blending
Dark green shadows on the wall
Jumping shaping
In rhythm to
A symphony of tongues
Senses reeling
Closed eyes see
Multi hued stars
In ecstatic fancy
Mellow yellow afterglow
Squishy wetness
All over me
Our passion is white hot
I am drunk and pink with pleasure
And so blue
When you are not here
