The lights from the cracks between warped boards
Is all I see of the day.
The almighty voyeur,
Starring through peephole, I can see him watch her move,
Her hips like swaying buoy on the horizon line
He watches it bob and bob and bob.
She smiles, fastidiously smiling. She knows
His eyes are glued to her ass like
gum stuck in the rivulets of my shoe

I don’t need it.

I don’t need anyone
I don’t need anything
As long as I can be left alone
my fingers walking thousands of miles
Across each and every keyboard
Until it’s all written.
