\"\"

Don’t know where

she said

 

standing by the back gate

which backed

 

onto the woods

with the evening creeping in

 

and she having snuck out

of her house without

 

her mother seeing

looked quite nervous

 

and kept looking back

over her shoulder

 

as if her mother

may have followed

 

can’t go to my place

she said

 

or mine you said

they’re always there

 

especially this time

of an evening

 

what about the hay barn?

You suggested

 

looking at her eyes

blue cornflowers

 

and that smile

that could have lit

 

fires in dark places

and she said

 

don’t want no hay stalks

touching my ass

 

and she laughed

and you wanted to capture

 

her laughter

and that smile

 

and her bright blue eyes

and your youth

 

and that thinking

you had forever

 

and the monopoly

on truth.
