Sybil: Aged 3To Joy H. Mann's previous piece


I watched you leave, grumbling
pulling on your jeans in a hurry
forgetting to zip, shirt
front to back, a bear's
eyes searching my naked body.
I remember your hairy hands spreading my thighs
fingers searching
tongue surveying the cave of my mouth
beam moving into dark places
what did you find that made you
leave so hurriedly?
