Eros Takes Time, Time Bites Back

by Andrew Kuo

Let me hear
your honeyed prevarications
touched with bituminous rumorous
venom.

Let me feel
timorous bass
exploring my body.
No, love isn’t idiopathic.

It’s a peregrine
more piquant sonorous
with passing days
clicks on odometer
so blunt base
unrelenting.
