Moonlight on portico


Who invented the potato chip,
Taking note of the way,
Flickering video light pushes,
Over moving flesh,
And empty crisp bags and bits of popcorn,

And buttered fingers,
Moans, and buttered tongues,
And wine glasses smothered with frantic lip marks,

Over car keys,
(Both sets),
And wallets in the kitchen,
And handbags down the corridor,

Over carpet,
And high-heeled shoes,
Jackknifed in the corner,

Over desperate thighs,
Over scattered chips,

Who,
Allowed you to roam the cosmos naked?

I am water on Mars;
If you look for me you will find me,

In the next lover you meet.
