The Target

Updated on November 12, 2012

The Target (4/6/12)

Under the gun he was satisfied--

The smell of ruby blood

Cocked a joy in his peppered nose

With each step of his stolen


He was a marksmen of women--

A damned fine one too.

There was no distance between him and his prey

When a man knows the nature

Of his ear

And this spackle of his eye

Gleaming of her trousers--

A woman's sky.

Lanterns leapt from a brilliant staid

Onto the pox of their cheeks

Now, ruddy from hard exchanges

Summoning a greater lust

Than hot cylinders in a craze--

We, each of us, procure a dominance

Of the senses when sense fails

And a lip contortion is like

A nanosecond's eternity--

None can escape the itch of gravity.

He is now with her as a leaf

Milks a dangerous conifer,

All save One doubt

Which shadows in their dark liason--

Windows are stuck because

Love can't see.

MFH (4/6/12)
