two-bit flattery

hold your hand
out to me,
i’ll trace the lines
below your skin
as you find your
way through my eyes;
two-bit flattery
always wins;

darlin’, i’ve
eaten white clouds
like cotton candy
to see the stars
that hide behind
veils of complaisance
and apparel;
they hide the scars;

dance around
the mulberry bush
with pinocchio
on your right;
i like green
eyes and
psychedelic bubbles
to warm the night…
