in the parking lot,
heartless honks
and cars backed up
in jagged lines
like zipper spines--
walk with a book
on your head--
need not lead to death,
but saggy pants just might

Afternoon Snack

his eyes were like almonds
drawing me into a secret place inside
where only I existed
and nothing else mattered
except us

those eyes that shined
when looking into mine
satisfied an insatiable appetite
from the very first taste
after which nothing else mattered
