Maria Pascualy. Two Poems


Sly


sheer white curtains 
slap the bay window   
a long willow branch slowly scrapes 
the old cylinder glass   a black dildo   
rests next to a cup of tea 
on grandmother’s bedside table  

beauty is accidental



Breakfast


a tall lady with a milky eye 
sits at my table   
her necklace comes undone 
and sinks into her cereal   
pretending not to see 
I cough   
unfold the ferry schedule 
as her manly hand plucks out 
the string of beads 
from the bowl of Cheerios
