Ah, infatuation

rears its ugly head 

as I watch

the Lithuanian lady

exiting the train.


but I proudly broke

an old school rule

writing her phone number

on the title page

of a novel by
Aleister Crowley.


You’d think I’d know better

about Eastern European women

and writing in books by now

but I didn’t have any other paper

and somehow

it seems different this time around.
