1984
by Amy Tudor


Thank you, Mr. Nelson,
for the naughty without the nice,
for the constant transgression
when I could not transgress,
for that smoldering and irresistible
reminder that things exist below
the waist and that desire could be
such a wicked, magic thing,
for your light the color of amethysts
in that world of black & white.
