down a cobblestone street
near Strong Avenue
he pauses to look over his shoulder
at a tender distraction
her soft ass and trendy glasses
she smiles near the corner
waiting for a faithful lover


I am just a porous heart
several bent vertebrae
carrying the weight
rarely contiguous
to the whole truth
never quite absolute
just pain and wanting
