Pent Beneath Fancy Knot
To the one pent beneath fancy knot,It is curious to look at your affair Catching you gaze toward heaven Each afternoon seeking fresh air Petitioning social network for leaven Numb cheek now fermenting
Who could rejoice with thee now?Fatigued, slipping into some ancient chat You lie back in whispering waves of mocha Toes banked in lukewarm grains of sand Swimming in ocean’s of caramel bliss Careless of the call you just missed
Pent beneath fancy knotUlysses’ alarm, pale reason to depart Returning home at sundown—eyes half shut Visions of Marla—the happy stray mutt Once proud royal, mourn the day left behind Slumber to the door—the angel’s tear has descended You slide softly and silently into your favorite spot.
Still pent beneath fancy knot
