Shane Clements: The Night Has a Thousand Eyes

=================================== Fall '11 TOC

Warm as a skeleton
under blankets eating soup,
he did little except laugh
and throw paper airplanes.

Is there another way,
one that doesn't leave skin
on the mattress,
that doesn't mention
what it means
not to mention?

It's true. The arrow
is more romantic
than a bouquet of candles
waxing poetic.

She is not impressed.

Neither are you
the one this is really about.
