Dear Reader, I thought
I was prepared but I’m never
prepared but please, take this

it is your lift ticket, your perfume
that lingers in the fire-fickle room
long after you’ve vamoosed

and made that poor boy nursing
his third jellybean daiquiri
realize he missed his chance,

your bones already astericks,
your chipmunk glance a schwa.


    — Dean Young, from Dear Reader
