Eeek Love: Art and Poetry

Mixed Media, Framed
8" x 10"

(one pierced moment, whiter than the rest ~ e.e. cummings)

when we played hooky
on the first warm day in May

when we sang to Pure Prairie League
falling in and out of love

when he called me every night
on a walk from his wife

when we biked in tandem
on Mackinac Island

when we posed astonished
on the thin ice of taste

when he turned, pulled my hand
to cup his sleeping cock

I did not say this was
one man; remember

words for pierced: parted,
riven, broken, sundered, torn.

Mary Bast, Eeek Love
