Player’s now played
by the plaything
too stupid to avoid
a tattooed ring
but no tolerance for
dishonesty
and disrespect
cannot circumvent
all the anger
it must be expressed

Heaven blessed notes
of love
and sovereignty
Do you remember
what that means?
Can you see between
the seams
as the stitching comes undone
Was it worth it
for some fun
in the sun
on a beach
in Hawaii
Everyone can see
how great you are
as you chat up the bar
Kisses taste more like
fake sweetener
than cigarettes
more like possibilities
than past regrets
Not a lashing
of the tongue
A song that’s gently sung
The perfect caress
green light
in our breasts
Heart beats
in perfect symmetry
Love dissolves me
again and again and again
