Consequences




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

you smiled,
as i had hoped you would
pearlies gleaming,
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?

  2. Yes it does...must be a powerful smile to get between you and your candy. :)

  6. Those situations when the might-have-beens wake up with a start ... sigh. But choices - both desirous and poisonous - have consequences and regret is futile. A lovely bittersweet piece, beautifully sketched, Audrey.
