THE HANDCUFFS

 

After Will Nixon

 

I wanted to hide in the closet and light a smoke.

I wanted to defy Father Time and vanish

in the long shadow of the big clock.

I wanted to jump from the roof to safety

in the arms of my ex-lover Cherise.

I wanted to confess at the hem of a bewildered nun.

I wanted to be mocked by giggling girls

sipping martinis at the mirrored bar.

I wanted to be led away in handcuffs into the swirling lights.

CARDIAC ARREST

 

due in courtship
holy bail bonds of matrimony
a wife sentence
