The Y Chromosome

The Y Chromosome short poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

you may wait days for a woman to pass by
who smells better than candy
better than art and nature could cook up
that’s a lot of days sniffing for an accidental woman
just so you can be arrested and be fully live
in that brief eddy of air
knowing that if you could capture it
stash it in an ironwood reliquary
bring it out for worship whenever you liked
you would truly be a murderer, a miser
those miracles forever ruined
