Eagle Nipples

   
 

Where eagle nipples

   
 
 

Soar, I come

   
 
 

to watch.

   
   
   
   
 

"Don't you think it's

   
 
 

Scandalous,

   
 
 

My wearing shorts

   
 
 

and floppies?"

   
   
   
   
 

We won't mention

   
 
 

Finely woven

   
 
 

Transparent

   
 
 

tube tops.

   
   
   
   
 

Like a puppy

   
 
 

Attending to

   
 
 

An opening can,

   
 
 

I listen.

   
   
   
   
 

"Let's see. What

   
 
 

Else?

   
 
 

It's good

   
 
 

to settle."

   
   
   
   
 

Her father spent

   
 
 

Hours

   
 
 

Regaling her with

   
 
 

stories.

   
   
   
   
 

How birds

   
 
 

Soar,

   
 
 

Birds flock.

   
 
 

"What's flock?"

   
   
   
   
 

"They settle. Let's

   
 
 

See,

   
 
 

What else? They

   
 
 

chatter."

   
   
   
   
 

She bends close to

   
 
 

Uncover the napkin

   
 
 

I'm hiding.

   
   
   
   
 

"What's it say?" she

   
 
 

Tugs,

   
 
 

Breasting

   
 
 

the table.

   
   
   
   
 

(i love you) it

   
 
 

Whispers,

   
 
 

Before I can

   
 
 

help it.

   
   
   
   
 

"It does not,"

   
 
 

She says.

   
 
 

It says,

   
 
 

'vector.'"

   
   
   
   
 

She gives me a

   
 
 

Look,

   
 
 

Gathering items here

   
 
 

and there.

   
   
   
   
 

Imagine drinking her kisses!

   
 
 

Unthirsty,

   
 
 

She flies away—

   
 
 

to settle.
