Title: Sigh Like a Lover, Sink Like a Stone

I gaze upon your thighs,

For the better side of life.

I search in your eyes,

But see lover swapped for wife.


Tell me not your daydreams.

Let your tattoo remain a mystery.

Your ankle turns all the lies,

I want to hear.


Your child cries in the night.

A husband waits for your kiss.

An uneducated vagrant would hurry

From his place in the grass.

You dream of hope,

But hope only for emptiness.

Don’t make me your pet vacuum.
