These Fruits in Her Hat (When She Danced)

pined a pull to

water me lonesome

said can't elope, straw barely strewn,

come quick, squat

piece me an ache

said grasp me be right here

men go, went, will continue to go, to mate

oh, we ran gentle

evoked cadences

a prime caught catch

bare-backed, said don't be lacking

keys we paired, preserved

lie me, let me on

grappled apart

hand-fed parts,

painted away in banter and amble

said honey,

do palms grant me this?
