No Right

In Poetry on March 6, 2014 at 3:54 pm

I am comparing things

that have no right to be

compared.

 

Seinfeld to The Shining.

 

A cookie and a carrot.

 

The sound of rain on

the air conditioning unit to the

clatter of heels.

 

I am comparing

the kiss of

a close friend

to the kiss

of a near stranger.

 

You kissed me for

who

I am.

He kissed me for

who he thinks

I am.
