26.3.13

crape myrtle

do not hold against
the wind your age
for we have all been light
at times
and have been pushed away--
an angled warning look
the time it takes to brush the hair aside
the nearby close of day
to wait undready
is half so unforgivable as to be stayed
a move,
a movement, steps,
the pumpkin-spice small of her back,
a guaging of the depth
an approach, idle,
a retreat, and the attack,
delayed.
