Jinx

Good in twos,
bad in threes.
How many
do you have
to pay back?

What sailor girl
worth her salt
doesn’t fancy the feel
of forbidden fruit
on her tongue?

There are targets
on my feet,
but what arrow
could you ever loose
to hold me here?

A rusted angel dances
in my headlights —
and I shrug off
or run down
these animated blues.
