milner place | you should…

you should

have kept
your irons in the fire

eyes strictly
on the ball

should not
have eaten
all the grapes

nor lingered
where
the desert
was a sea bewitched

and all of time
crawled
naked
through a sky
where swam
a lonely
and frustrated sun

shouldn’t
have talked back
to those eyes

nor laid
your lips
upon
those breasts

you shouldn’t
but

it’s wiser
that you did
