Monday's Poem

On Seeing a Corvette with a Table Tied on Top

I must know
some of the women
you have made love to
on sweet dustless moonstruck nights

the round bed of your penthouse
spins around you
a knight at night
who rides
a great white Corvette stallion

you pass swiftly
on the highway
your face averted
a grim grip on the wheel

mirror, mirror on the wall:
who's the fairest one of all?

you know the mythic mirror lies:

there is a cube van in the blind spot

and a

      closer to collision

fairytales and furniture
