“Take” by L. K. Thayer

-take one-

fat chance meeting
high heels, lipstick
just right
for the night.

-take two-

fast and frenzied
the beast was on
locked in
shoulda known better
in that tight sweater.

-take three-

took a tumble
down the deep well
of grief,
(too many grapes will
do that to you.)
the seeds are always

to awaken
