INCOMPREHENSIBLE IS A GOOD WORD

This part of the bedspread
where the sheet overhangs
shall now be referred to as
The Widow's Eyelid.
Inexplicably,
the reduction
in background noise
is unprecedented



THE INSURRECTION OF A PICK-UP LINE

Reaching deep
into a pocket,
retrieving a pedantic
semblance of smalltalk
with hopes of
converting Aphrodite to
the nominative polemics
of the Divine.



BE STILL, MY LITTLE APHRODISIACS

Sometimes my fingers
slither just out of reach.
When inversely interlocked,
their intent is to represent
a church congregation.
Instead they all wave in the wind
like would-be opportunists.
