2 ½ by 3 ½

AllureI wedge myself into

Your cavernous wallet

A photograph immutable

In a flimsy plastic sheath

A face unburdened by passage

*

Proliferate as nicotine stains

I infiltrate every omission

Such is addiction when free

*

A perennial smile

That exsanguinates fear

A love that endures gracefully

Even in confinement

You present me to strangers

With a credulous pride

She is mine can you believe it?
