The Morgue File
by laura musikanski
i bumped against you accidentally
in the candy section of the local Pik 'n Shop
pondering choices both
desirous and poisonous
as i had hoped you would
your lashes dancing
as i lost myself
between one heart beat and another.
the viccistudes of a sugar rush
held at bay,
until my choice was made.
regret seems futile, don't you agree?
