poem #12

despite all appearances

a distraction
performed under bright lights

for I want and need the warm blanket of a fond gaze

an offering
placed upon fine china

for I worry incessantly about billboards and choking hazards

a foundation
built of steel and trust

for I long for balance in trade; imports and exports

entre nous
a nocturne
whispered while you sleep

for I have not courage enough for the unguarded honesty of brazen mea culpa
