Worth The Weight of Gold

The swing of her hips

were like waves

lapping away in the ocean


She walks as if

the universe is

held captive on her palm



like you’re impenetrable


Eyes violent-

you’re too efficacious to waver


She traipsed across that pavement

like she owned it


Concrete caved delicately

beneath her soles

the method molded in her soul

I couldn’t tear my eyes away


It’s a graceful amble

a slight gamble

to see if my poise

will wither before that cements

as she eats up time along it


There are words

etched into that sway

pictured memories dancing

along her casing

just asking for me to grovel


With my knees

tinged with reverence

paying her tongues of homage

yet she scorns me
