Dialect -10/12/2013


as I held the door open for her
what I really wanted to say
to this stranger
was something like-

"I like your arse,
can I please wear it as a hat?"

Instead of that
the more conventional-
"oh after you"
comes out my mouth
with a big smile
which she returns
before walking away

and somewhere
in that translation,

I get lost.
