Three Tankas on the Lawn Gone to Nick

Primed to meet you, I
was unsure when you left me
you’d come back. You did –
touching my arm to secure
attention reassured me.

Sight of you evoked
feelings I must once have had
of attraction – not,
as I recalled from my case,
enough to persuade consent.

Feelings focussed on
eyelids, oddly: dark, rounded,
full, words suggestive
of the balls beneath, of sex
aesthetically sublimed.
