Worth The Weight of Gold

 
The swing of her hips

were like waves

lapping away in the ocean

 

She walks as if

the universe is

held captive on her palm

 

Straight-backed

like you’re impenetrable

 

Eyes violent-

you’re too efficacious to waver

 

She traipsed across that pavement

like she owned it

 

Concrete caved delicately

beneath her soles

the method molded in her soul

I couldn’t tear my eyes away

 

It’s a graceful amble

a slight gamble

to see if my poise

will wither before that cements

as she eats up time along it

 

There are words

etched into that sway

pictured memories dancing

along her casing

just asking for me to grovel

 

With my knees

tinged with reverence

paying her tongues of homage

yet she scorns me
