how goes it

She peeks over her spectacles
Like a vexed librarian
But this is no library
And I am no inconsiderate reader.
She does not vocalise her complaint
But I assume it is something to do
With my tapping my pencil eraser’s metal rim
Against the tombstone tips of my teeth,
And the stopping thereof.I meet her gaze
And flash her a grin
Like a crescent of clipped toenail.
These petty atrocitiesI commit all the time.
This is a five year plan.
This is a skull-fuck by instalments.
And when she returns to her book,
Prodding her specs up the tanned saddle of her nose,
I wait –One Mississippi
Two Mississippi
Three Mississippi –
Then I lift the pencil like a baton,
My incisors a lectern,Music, maestro.
The concerto commences.
