Words


Words


The incidental whore,
with The Accidental Tourist.
The view from here
in A Room with a View.

Once a thief, always a thief?
Once a Lady, always a Lady!
Whore. 

A word that describes a youthful challenge.
But, now what?
View.  I took down the windows last March,
on the wake of my fifty ninth birthday.
Sixty.

Accidental names for numbers, words
with windows, views reaching out
and stepping on proverbs.

When I’m dead if you call me a whore
I’ll come back and shake your bed,
make you think it’s an earthquake,
hijo’e puta, ja-ja!
