May 6

she paddled in the chitchat
suddenly surprised
to find herself in deep water

she fitted herself
into the conversation
like an ugly sister into a glass shoe

she conducted him
around herself
as if she were a museum

she talked about herself
as if she were chapter headings
in a history book

she felt like an actress
in a play other than
the one she should have been in

the stopped( ha h.... )laughter
running madly
about inside her

her strangeness stretched
all the way to the end of the room
her . .horizon

"I'm learning to be
for your kiss!"

"Ahhh...that kiss
I think I need
a bit more practice!"

the unopened weeks
lay ahead of her
she longed to be them

"Love all!"
she grabbed him by his whatnots
"Advantage ***** please!"
