Poem 20 Revised

Curtain Cat-Calls


Play players play

Romance me with a chest lead

Left stage in a heart-beat

I can see the zipper—from here.


Evoke a trope so troublesome

I’ll shrug at strangers and laugh—wildly.

Come! Defile me with your imitation

Is that how I sound when I ruse?


Collapse your curtain like a floor bound robe

Let’s be naked together, stage

Play dirty thespian tricks while I’m not watching

And laugh wildly—laugh wildly at me.
