POETRY: RICHARD KING PERKINS II – DODGY EDGE

Dodgy Edge

You’re out shopping
right now

for the room
we’re going to share
tonight.

It will be cheap,
somewhere
on the dodgy edge of town

but you’re looking
at the color
and pattern of the curtains

the quality of the artwork
on the walls.

I’m disappearing
in faint gusts of wind

lost in anticipation

wondering why
you expect to take away
anything more

than what
I put inside you.
