Every action in our lives touches on some cord that will vibrate in eternity.


i asked you to pass the rubber bottle to me

across

a

rushing

moat

of

nervous

thoughts.

my elastic pupils kept
springing back to your hairline.

(don't notorious criminals always
return to the scene of the crime?)

my black fingers clash with your white ones
like piano keys only a half-step apart.

that's why i fell in love with you:

because of the mustard.


The author's comments:
From a prompt in creative writing class. We were to use the words notorious, piano, mustard, moat and elastic. Of course I had to be the weird one who turned it into a love poem.
