In another time, another life;
All factors constant and considered,
Both parties on the same wavelength,
Scruples dangling uselessly on the window-sill –
And the Other One conveniently inexistent:
I’ll eat from your hand – a tamed beast,
Toe the party line from sheer bliss
Brought about by my prying for misadventure,
Utterly mindless of a dark surprise hanging unseen –
As I hug tightly, the mirage of a storybook finale!
ALAS! It is now!
Everything is as is and appears thought through:-
And the Other One inconveniently exists.
