heart tucked underarm

inspired by ‘Man on Crutches’ painting, by Paul Cavilla.

if it’s not love,
don’t touch it-

not near prepared to,
read the feel,

cause these winks at
loving feelings have rarely
cut the peel so real.

if she’d only spare some
change for mercy to
deal me the feel of
realer touch-

I may not ask as much,
only stable with
a crutch,
