Fourberie

   

Appetence pushes me to you. Do not reeve me to your

unresponsiveness. Next time I will come with the keys.

For now, let us audition for our two-hander on wrappings

of the rain. Its petrichor more sensual than scent on our shelf.

Remember, the flotilla of footfalls that hounded us?

Let us go back to the ballads we couldn’t bellow?

They will stoke our secrets, cancelling the chorus

of half-hearted crossovers.
