Poetry: TIGHT [from the forthcoming collection, "Bushido"]

Knock knees
inch up to silken thighs that
beneath suede
mini reeling under
The pressure from
boy-short laced
Moving forward propulsively
Just like how her
corporate sedan surges
into the thickening
traffic sludge
Street vendor throws up
a spandex rainbow selling
and soliciting
And gas station
Attendant pilots a
dripping mop over discount
tiles supporting shelves bearing
goods marked up triple
Defying criticism the
way her Caravaggio curves
defy gravity
Thin belt straining
like the social order under
Scandal, unchecked sexuality creaking capitalism
Crooked politics and
crazy consumerism
