Peace

I sharpen my ellipsis
as I’ve got only one
expecting any sudden
opportunity to use it
as I please

Purposeful interposition of
space between
periods

to purport
more is
to come

Perhaps
I am
the ellipsis

Broach

My mouth probes yours
soft, dry daubs
pulls on Cupid’s Bow
the slow release
of the lower lip
a flue for fires
burned in softer centers
