Believe

mhj

She comes behind me while

I’m sitting there at the banquet

and when I realize it’s her it’s over–

over for everybody and everything that’s not her.

the boring banquet, my unfortunate date,

all of it.

I get up, turn and face her,

and she’s dazzling as always, standing there

in that dramatic dress of many colors.

I say her name and she says mine —

the usual preliminaries and updates,

but I know more about her situation than I should

and ask her if I can possibly give her a lift home.

She says no, but hesitantly enough that

I know she actually wants one.

Come on, I say. You don’t want to take the bus.

Not at this hour. I put my arms around her.

Not in that dress.

She shrugs. It’s not about the dress, she says.

But I guess I would appreciate a ride.

Great, I say, wonderful, and slide my hands down to her ass,

like old times.

Don’t. She flinches.

Come on. I take her by the shoulders, holding her still,

staring dead in her eyes.

You know how I feel about you.

You know I would never, ever hurt you in any way.

I don’t know, she says, shutting her eyelids tight.

I don’t know that. Sometimes I just choose to believe it.

Earth-Shaker

1

Tottering on tectonic heels

Producing a universal quaking

Flicking cigarette ashes

Ashes we all fall down

Is this where you want me

Looking up to you

Double vision trails as you

Stalk to and fro in front of

The panoramic picture window

In the midst of a typically

Half terrifying half hilarious

Rant — hysterical either way

.

And fucked up me I just see

A forest of legs scissoring the skyline

A futurist horse effigy carving space

I start laughing I mean how

Is it after I tried so hard

To get you into my bed

Instead I wind up here

Supine on your luxuriant carpet

And naturally my laughter renders

You angrier and more amused

— hysterical either way
