Dude, He was All Like "Glitter, Glitter" When He Touched Me
by Hezekiah Allen Taylor

a pass not so subtle
she packed it in a tight box of amusement
sent it back to him still sealed

he was embarrassed
by his lack of skill
and his overabundence of both
confidence and egg nog
that came with the office Christmas party
like a companion stealing in
past his wife

she looked for all the world
like a 12-year-old powdered
and perfumed and parading around
in the holiday dress and matching tights
of a much older sister

it had titilated him;
it had thrown him

he was never any good
at followthrough
