Quaint Curio


She talks about her latest
project, as though
I might aspire
to same or similar,


as though informing
a young facsimile
of self what heights are
possible, if not likely.


I fail to glaze over
during this recital.
I lavish sweet perfume
of my mentality


concerning a CV as plush
as a new feather bed
on which I lie, repeating
what will not be rinsed away.
