Educating the body – Kevin Ireland

Educating the body – Kevin Ireland

when she asked
her sudden: why?
she tricked no answer
from my eye

when she tried
to make me slip
she forced no stammer
from my lip

she tried to joke
to sting to trip
her efforts could not
shake my grip

what should she do
with one so sly?
even my body
learns to lie
