Accents (for William)


And an accent

Like an auditory

Pheromone like a

A fragrance tickling

My ear like

A refreshing cocktail

Crisp and sweet

Like a dry

Sherry paired with

A crackling fire

Or like a

Whiskey smooth and

Smokey and slightly

Bitter these things

That you say

And how you

Say them makes

Me melt like

A freshly formed

Snowball in the

Hands of frolickers

Always aimed directly

At my heart
