shot glass
"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare




Satiated on square, habit in hand,
I see mothers form tight fists
with their children's extended digits,
steer their attention towards idle chat
to pass by my lover's green lips
puckering from brown paper bag.
Our exhibitionist camouflage:
covering her mouth with my lips
to make the world disappear
sip by sip.
