versus.



she will be your

inevitable stretch


cunning misconduct

against silken linens


compulsory tonic

a perfectly weighted glass


tastefully painted nails

in the midst of a january squall


she will be the artist

in company of banal accountants


calculating your future

movement with measured vigor


she will integrate flour and water

stir, and preheat the oven
