Left Wanting

ecdysiast butterfly girl
with a poker face
framed by
her wicked hairstyle
while dressed in
a binding carapace
men in transmission
coagulate together
each a modest
potato offering
seeking to slumber
succumb to scents
of lagerstroemia
yet each offer
ends only in

-Poem by Justin Germino
