I Met a Seducer

Grace Paley (2008)

One day a seducer met a seducer
now said one     what do we do
fly into each other's arms said
the other     ugh said one     they turned
stood back to back     one
looked over one's shoulder     smiled
shyly     other turned seconds
too late     made a lovelier
shy smile     oh my dear said other
my own dear     said one
