Treasure Island

John W. McEwers

(6/20/1980 / Nova Scotia, Halifax)

I'll Touch You Like He Won't


I hear lawyers wear gloves
or carry around evidence
in little sealed clean bags
like ham sandwiches

I hear lawyers pick up stuff
with the dainty tips of their fingers
before pointing those fingers
like outing witches

I hear lawyers wear suits
and good ones never sweat
but do good men ever not
sweat good for you?

These men can't compare
to my hands so bare
with a gymnast's grip
to prove my love is true

No gloves, even loves, will
barrier my passion from you.

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
