Binary Bouquet


Its been ten minutes
since you blocked my sight with a scarf of spiny angora

my hand held out
as if for pay or submission

to receive, though deservingly, with guilt

with my sizzling paper torch
i can hear the arcane piss-crackle of a fuse betorched

have you lit a firework in memory of a smile designed for your eyes only
