REJECTING OVID

the fabulous beauty of your face-

so esoteric,

not always in this place-

beguiles me.

it's late, mesmeric

smile is but a base,

a film to interface

with the movements of the mind behind it.

my smile, me-

like Thomas O'Malley

the alley

cat reclining on a tin bin lid

with fishy whiskers-

turns the ink in the valley

of your quills

into script,

while i sit

and sip

your syllables

with fresh red sepals of habiscus,

rejecting Ovid

and his Amores

for your stories.
