First Impressions (An Observation On Authority) - Poem by Whitney Jones Olson

A mew, an assertion, a confusion on verse.
A submission; audition; insatiable thirst.

A tremble, a shiver, a sliver of fear;
Attention; a tension; intriguing austere.

A slipping, a quickening, a reaction to voice;
A taking; a knowing; abdication from choice.

A fantasy, a fallacy, a fascination bound;
Lascivious; licentious; lingering in sound.
