POEM: Catching Shifts

in busy •  2 months ago

Don't ask me
if I slice my seconds
for your slender shifts

Too big to swallow
and too hollow
to call a tender gift

Don't ask me
to bend any more
than you've already seen

My back is arched
and inner light spans
to the mezzanine

You keep assuming
my hands miss
the pearls you betray

While I say less,
is more cacophony
necessary?
