Poetry + Snap: “Prom”

Press your cordwood palms
To pray at the brim
Out of your mind

Carefully apply a
Cardamom kiss
Just below the belt
Of your Cardinal-prim
Prom dress(shoes)
Cock your tiara
His to choose

Wet stitches itch
Cinch it in
Inch by inch
Lips reading
Waist to hips
Hearts of thoughts
Debased, debauched
Make the sign of the
Warded off

His win
Great cost
Her love
Your loss
