red neck of any colour

Posted to Poetry and Politics

once upon a time
i was shocked to find
a thick wedding band hand
on my thigh

i, slow to respond,
sat for a minute wondering why
then decided to build a fence
between us, fast

later on,
a gay friend of mine
says she always carries
a fat book
for such fence building times
and she tries to slam it
down upon installation

works for her

i stopped sitting beside
fat handed thigh feelers
