Friendly Sneezes

IMG_1351

I have a voice
a smooth’d timbre
when those who call out,
cough up an itch
that mountain cedar

notoriously
predictably
and without one “sorry”

demands to see,
interrogate,
tease.

But as for myself,
softened is trust
I hope you’ve secured
in a frayed old purse
respective to all allergies

sincerely
concernedly
brewing regret

Perhaps, it is best
that we look, and not touch.
