Selected Poems

SHYNESS

 

                   What if we are stuck?

 

I feel an echo,

        a cacophony of occasions,

I asked for you hand,

(whispering)

my mouth packed full,

(whispering)

shy from situations

avoiding entrapment

and decisions

 

                   "won't you have a drink? " -

                   " won't you have a drink?" -
