Fancy

Dangling Earring

why
yes
you are splendid-
ly sin-drenched
in my knee-jerk
to glimpses of you
stolen in moments
distraction from what matters
have been trivialized
in the wake of your
alarmingly arresting
attention-thieving
suspension of my dreams
unraveled
traipsed over and
through
done
undone
congratulations
you have one
more captive
mind
for a brief time
now what

will I find
in this new dream of mine
to keep
me from waking
behind the walking by
of the next fancy
passer-
by
?
