Melissa and Notes

in a nice semi
the dreamers' daughter
adopts a style
steps out
to use the train

Cattle-truck men slobber up eyesful
Lick her over until she
shakes, clutches her heart

but she'll be OK
after many journeys

The rattled carriage grinds to stop
Cage opens
She flies

~ ~ ~

Your smile is a spell
Your eyes smile
Your words

Outside your flat
Inflated with desire
I wait for a glimpse
A chance to talk
Like we used to

Before you stuck me
On a list
In a box
On your shelf
