Doris Cornago Poems
You Got Me At Very
I am dazzled by your well chosen words
A very careful man, you hide behind
A curtain of disdain or profane
Should it matter which face you hide?
I would rather see the face with which
You greet me when you come to the table
Washed up, feeling secure, ready to feast...
You are Adonis in resplendent attire at best

Or drinks blood when the sun sets, what of it?
Use a spoon, close your mouth when chewing
A civilized person is better than a vulgar man
Who prattles incessantly when I would rather
Just gaze and ...

How luckier I would be
Rather than be tight as a fist
Grasping a gem of untold value...
