let me guess

… no bet
one dollar …

in a world of distress
how’d you guess
an owl can be
on the make
" to take it "
and have a ball
with the nerve
" to deserve "
it all…

what a mess
if we can’t confess
that a roast
in a dish
is a funny
on the bones
and a honey
in bear tones

“three eyes”
to see you with
and a pair of lies
to scare you with
where boundaries
in the sounds
of disguise

“was it slight?”
what she said
or was it a write
to call in
what you paid

let me guess
it was in the lines
that you thought
you’d lay…
