Poetry #03: cursory

[This was originally published in F.U.C.K. poetry Issue #3. The publish date is approximate. Originally written in 1996.]


her eyes reached out to me
picked me up and spun me about
a cursory examination to size me up

something’s wrong, the eyes glaze over
her demeanor changes once again
the firm grasp over me tightens
drains my will before my strength
