Selection 4 of


by April Ardis Anderson
Thief! Thief! Hooligan! Rascal!
What manner of man are you
To steal my breath away
With your kiss?!?!
As if that were not enough
To glut your impetuous heart
You vampirically attacked my vocals
Rendering me speechless!
Might I mention also
That the sharp corner of your smile
Snagged the earth that I walk on
Leaving me with heaven's air?!
Well, if you give these items back
You're pardoned - but mind you, quick as can be!
(In the same manner, of course, that they were taken from me).
