The Hometown Cad

with
come-hither visage
he worms his
way in
just under
the soil
of good
Intentions.

and plays
a god with
wanton rules.

a ne’er-do-well,
a miscreant,
a caitiff,,,

that leery midnight Lark
who haunts the dreams of
your Mother-
her sheets, a morass
of sweat-soaked avarice;

but you, all-willing,

,,,your window left
unlocked.
