LOST IN LINGERIE

I think I may be in the wrong department
escalator? elevator? stairway?
up? down? sideways?
or just remain in Security?

DOCILE

May I think of you from time to time?
Just asking permission.

CHINATOWN

Is Wo Hop beginner's Chinese food?
Is Dr. Wong beginner's acupuncture?
I guess I never grew up.

"26"

Your hair recollects 26
Your eyes 25
Your sweet aura 24 (a)
The best love years of my life.

ELEVATOR 1

Ascension, descension
descension, ascension, descension
Our friendship got stuck between floors
Will it start again?
Or shall I call the super?

                Dale Kaplan


ELEVATOR 2

I ran into Willie on the elevator
He asked about you on the elevator
I told him you stopped talking to me on the elevator
We disembarked from the elevator
And proceeded to take the stair
