Landline



Landline

We decide
Nobilities aside
Prescribe the ephemeral
Feeling

Of being subject
To dramatic glances,
Their eyes,
Electric blenders

As you succumb to the sweet,
Sickly exchange,
In your short black dress
And your oily breath,

Flames inside your chest
And beads of sweat along your palm
I look for a loophole in oxygen
While you push at furniture.

Inspired by the words in the Sunday Whirl from April 15th
