Between Beauty and Villainy
and post notes and photos about your poem like Timothy Hicks.
She has the promise to excite a man's imagination
and the expectation she's too giddy to foil.
Similar to a gargoyle, but something makes me question
how statuesque - with the way she's entangled in herself
like a pair of headphones left abandoned in a jean's pocket.
Her complex nature tiptoes between beauty and villainy:
a damsel in distress that I'd have doubts about saving.
Should I hold her hand with affection?
Kiss her lips with seductive glee?
Or slip away into the blanket of the night
with my life and dignity still intact.
