The Ineluctable Cynosure

By Tom Squitieri

Standing now
Nervous and eager
Competition in 
Restrained desires
Torrid in subtly
Knowing you want
Me to proceed
Our inosculate
Yet will not say so
Artistic, beautiful, sensual, stirring
All crave our entelechy
You need do nothing
Other than look
comment
Direct, capture
Our descant
Yearning for you to 
Create in limn
Before you
send me away
And enjoy as fully
As you wish
