stand back

your sighing unnerves me
your rigid self-righteousness
deserves less than this petty
panting of barely arousal

I cling to hope even now
yet you strum strings of a
gilded broken saz that says
so much more about you than me

let us play this safe and sure
remove your wandering fingers
from my trembling hand
and stand back another pace or two

or a thousand more
