Fall Guy

I'm the swine, before whom you have
Thrown your pearls. Lucky me, and
I'm the pair of eyes which watches
As you sashay down the hall, a pair
Of eyes, now paralyzed, and, possibly,
In paradise, believing, without evidence,
That you have sketched designs on me.
Your husband's working late again,
The kids are safely with your mom,

[Hata Bildir]
