I Get Weak


if only if how
ever clever
enough for you
and your
mannered side-swipe compliments
bringing bandages, Bayabas leaves
in bouquet


this is what happens-
from nowhere
the wrong word
pops into my retort
tourniquet-tied you tell me
how beautiful
how beautiful

as you straighten my hair
tuck the tag in the back of my shirt
yes how beautiful
you could be darling
you could be my little Belinda Carlile
if only, if how

drop the Chardonnay
bandage ready
enter, hero
