'Do Not Resist The Lust' & 'Untitled': Two Poems by Joshua Dobson



DO NOT RESIST THE LUST


A villanelle:


1. A You mustn’t resist the lust,

2. B To wander and travel free,

3. A Each day that comes you must.


4. A Adventure begins with trust,

5. B Obeying the distant plea,

6. A You mustn’t resist the lust.


7. A For walking on distant dust,

8. B Inspires you to see,

9. A Each day that comes you must


10. A The world you entrust,

11. B To favour gleefully,

12. A You mustn’t resist the lust.


13. A Like scrapping off the rust,

14. B Embarking on the sea,

15. A Each day that comes you must


16. A Step out and be robust,

17. B Go earn your life degree,

18. A You mustn’t resist the lust,

19. A Each day that comes you must.






UNTITLED


The joy that comes when it sounds

Bumbling along its intended route

To share and sample each passing face

And make transactions true


A thing underestimated

Not often held to its utter glory

They think it ordinary and opaque

But I know it’s secret high estate


It rolls and rumbles with giddy glee

Carrying the warmest of treasures enroute

A small fee to pay to gain its favour

But I’d willingly give all of me


The journey is improved with its presence,

And certainly unpleasant with its absence.

A simple addition that makes the experience.

A gift in the midst of bland transportation.


And ever the jewel in the crown to this glorious journey,

Is the lady or man asking so sweetly:,

‘Anything from the trolly?’
