Lifter - Poem by Richard George

Swoop
to the biscuits; in/
out the swing-door.
Mixed race. Actress.

She's rangy seconds well away.
Do I tell the college authorities?

Would I want her to hang, for some cookies?

A dare among girlfriends?
A protest at pornography
on the top shelf ('I'm not paying pigs') ?
Or had her loan expired?

I feel for eagles held up
by churlish farmers, limp.

A sequel, when I have wings.
