I hated being four …
So I was glad that it was my fifth birthday .
I was not expecting much
Since the only birth we celebrated in our home
Was for the ‘baby jesus’ .
It had been raining since early that morning …
And to add to the gloom
My alcoholic mother
Was screaming at my alcoholic father
Who then decided
That if he punched a hole in the wall
Somehow it would make him feel better .
To escape from the drama
My grandmother announced
That she would take me to the Mayfair cinema .
I had never been to a real movie theatre before
So I was excited …
And at the same time just a little frightened
To be going on this unexpected journey .
I remember a bus ride that seemed to take forever .
But when we finally arrived at our destination
I experienced a breathtaking sight .
Seen through the mist of a twilight rain
The brightly lit marquee
Seemed to take on a celestial glow .
And as we walked into the lobby
I felt as if I were entering heaven .
That day all my senses were aroused .
By the delicious scent of the freshly popped corn .
By the immensity of the cathedral like auditorium
With its rows and rows of plush red velvet seats .
And finally …
As I sat in the comfort of my own chair
I felt as if i were in someones warm embrace .
The lights dimmed and the curtains parted …
Then it began .
I sat in awe
As an incredible new universe
Poured itself into my soul …
With sights and sounds that filled my body
With an ecstasy that i had never known .
Suddenly i heard the voice of an angel
That seemed to be singing only to me .
I began to cry
Because something that I had never felt before
Touched my heart .
I believe that afternoon
I experienced my first orgasm …
It lasted ninety nine minutes !
The film was Romance On The High Seas …
The angel was Doris Day …
And the song was Magic !
