Yes – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


“I think the eyes flirt most. There are so many ways to use them.” Anna Held


Never a word in
this delicious conversation,
your eyes yessed mine
with unnerving penetration,
without invitation,
your corners creased with
Persephone's confidence,
your gentle assault overrunning 
my fleeting ambivalence,
putting doubt to the sword in
deft strokes of sparkle.
