To the one pent beneath fancy knot,It is curious to look at your affairCatching you gaze toward heavenEach afternoon seeking fresh airPetitioning social network for leavenNumb cheek now fermenting
Who could rejoice with thee now?Fatigued, slipping into some ancient chatYou lie back in whispering waves of mochaToes banked in lukewarm grains of sandSwimming in ocean’s of caramel blissCareless of the call you just missed
Pent beneath fancy knotUlysses’ alarm, pale reason to departReturning home at sundown—eyes half shutVisions of Marla—the happy stray muttOnce proud royal, mourn the day left behindSlumber to the door—the angel’s tear has descendedYou slide softly and silently into your favorite spot.
Still pent beneath fancy knot
