Interference – Poem from 3/21/18

Is my body
a mere distraction?

Does it light up
when you look at it?

Does it make your mouth water
like Pavlov’s dog
with just the bell?

Does it move you to action;
biting your tongue,
and clenching your fists
to stop you from touching?

Do you think it will sing
like a violin
when you stroke your fingers
over its strings?

“Not here?”
“Then where?”
“Too fast.”
“Not enough.”
“More?”
“Yes.”

When you’ve recovered
from the overstimulation
at the mercy of it,
will I count as a lover?

Or just a mere distraction?
