Romance Under Razor Wire

Laura Saint Martin

Chasing that last sunset of you under

                                         battened-down fences, I can’t not love

                            your splendid disdain, your regal shuffle

               through a refurbished universe, our voices

more real than lights and alarms. I’m a

                                         puppet in the clutch of these drugs.

                              Just a kiss,

             a ribbon of smoke.

                                                             Just one more moon.
