Lifting your shirt

I saw it through the car window

And the bold, bright pinpricks

The salty sea which reflects its image

Bouyant but too dangerous for drinking

His hands, wandering

The hot, flushed pink

 

And leans away from the sturdy

Sort of solidness

Of scheduled dinners and bill payments;

My safe haven

 

The sky, to me, resembles

The suffocating leather

Of your jacket

It smells processed

With the brassy, white plastic

of political pins

 

If I had to do romance again

I wouldn’t.

Help me quit my job…

And buy my book!

Sometimes you will like her, sometimes you may not. Sometimes you may laugh or cry or want your money back. But life’s not very fair that way, now is it?

This is a coming of age story, and that age is almost thirty
