Montague’s Seduction

The exalted text’s neither hers nor mine—
Smoke it or drink it with red Groover wine.
I write this in the small of her back
While she giggles chirpily in the endorphin stream
Postcoital and high on fine stash from the
Bloodshot-eyed man on the street.
My cartouche of permanent black
Indian sweet chocolate on a hot
Sunday above the bustling din of the market in a
Life-pressed room my writing disappears in her
She says my Parker tickles as a I draw this line
She holds and shudders me
