i tipped my heart in your direction

when you were watching baseball the other day.

as i touched your arm,

your eyes

fell into the whorls of my fingertips

keeping the scent of you

at the ready.

a capricious turn of eye

to the inside of my wrist.


who knew that your eyes

carried such temptation.

      This was certainly not my husband while he watches sports, as he is entranced and unreachable but it is an excellent poem!

      Bill and Jodah are right. Who would have imagined such sensuality emerging from a few baseball references. :) Quite wonderful. Sharing. Theresa
