State Theater, Bitch

Saint Petersburg, FL.

Poor eyes fell to you—

All in—

With one glance;

I tried to stand in

Driveways too long—

A warning of porch lights

From parents to call it;

You lingered in me

From there, for

Awhile, for

Too long…

…if I could be—

Remote little devil-loves,

Near to our cores,

Cupped in scalded hands;

Tossed key chains

In parking lots—you seized

Me; at a time, when

I was young and easily

Seized,

To throw anything

Heart-shaped

Into a parking lot

Metaphor (in

This case: literally)…

When I was

A seized-eighteen—

Broke of heart

In the palm of your door.
