Stirring : A Literary Collection

Emory Elkins


                              for Laura M.

When you catch me red-handed --

as in I was
only lonely --

admiring a Georgia O'Keefe.

Pull the pants back up and say:
"I walked down the street,
tried to look neat, and pretended
to remember my name."

As in relief.

Your hand
moves over me.
