collage poem

If you didn't know this was about collage, you might be concerned ;-)


Was I supposed to ask?
It would be a lie if I said it
crossed my mind.
You were lying there;
and you looked so beautiful.
I wanted to use you.
I wanted to cut you.
And whom,
and whom was I supposed to ask
Another drink and I'll decide.
I'll decide
if you should be part of it.
But "it" is not really "a plan".
It's not a premeditated thing,
for the most part.
Sometimes it "just happens"
I'll cut you a bit
and I'll move you around.
The gray color of your skin...
it really is beautiful.
