Pantoum

As described in my writing worksheet: “These are poems about obsession. They keep going over and over certain images. Whatever haunts us, annoys us, excites us-that’s the province of the pantoum.”

“Pants-toum” 

A man in blue jeans, behold the sight.

I steal a glance when he walks by.

Whether he’s contained by zipper, or button fly.

Oh stitch! How have you held across his thighs? 

I steal a glance when he walks by.

A measure of snugness, roundness, fit causes reaction.

Oh stitch! How have you held across his thighs?

See the wear, the tear, a rugged man.

A measure of snugness, roundness, fit causes reaction.

A visual feast for hungry eyes

See the wear, the tear, my kind of man.

Wearing Wranglers, Lucky, and Levis too.

He’s perfect poured into a denim mold.

A man in blue jeans, behold the sight.

I stay to watch while he walks away.

Whether he’s contained by zipper, or button fly.
