popcorn tastes like cardboard with air like a kiss from a whore
midnight feels alone and sad like a hug from someone not there
flowers drowned come in weeping and i offer nothing warm
apologies are well done like i love you said from the back of your mouth
and every non beat of a song never sung is simply nothing at all

Good lawd, woman -- they're both works of art.  Are you submitting?  You are APR material if anyone here is!  I can't choose between the two; they are companion pieces.  You are more than a poet, Mags ... get busy.

"It is with a strange malice / That I distort the world." -- from The Weeping Burgher by Wallace Stevens
