things are taken without permission,
into a pot of paws, cow, chicken, pork and protein
paws take what’s theirs
this now-pimpled hat taken off the couch,
is stuck on my head, shouting at passersby
“i am his now!”
in this place persuasion is important
tell me no, and I’ll inch you to a maybe
tell me yes and i’ll extract the gold bits that fill your teeth
we were in my bed, she was ready to leave
playfully wrapping my legs around her waist– hips kissing feet
a monkey play, a swinging tease
she wasn’t having it
I was negotiating, she was leaving.
