for her


by Gary Percesepe


anywhere

on any night you wish

look down your street

 

observe your empty room

an abandoned field

the elevator in city hall

 

no sudden passion

no surge of desire

no air disturbed

 

she will appear

like a cutting stone

her laughter a fresh sword

 

small nose framing her face

arms encircling your waist

her mouth of kisses

 

the glitter of her teeth

will become the lights

of the city you left.
