martha (for jamelah)

Posted to Action Poetry




that hair
tousled just so
like a golden
invitation to
hang on to your
apron strings
glossy on the
cover telling me
what to do
how you like it
ordering me
to perfection
with a spark
in your eye
you say it's
a good thing
and i wonder
what you're really
praising.
