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.

      I agree with Bill: Baseball has never been so sexy. Lovely and very relatable.

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

      Nice one Audrey! The look into the insides of my wrist - my favorite line!

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