Black Lace & Diamonds by Craig Sernotti

Clouds are on fire
but so what.
I'll watch the world end
from my couch.
With the cat pawing
at the aquarium
& the dog asleep
at my feet.
You in the kitchen
in black lace & diamonds.
Do you hear that?
It's the sound of California
falling into the ocean,
me pulling off my pants

- originally appeared in Dogzplot; also published in my book Forked Tongue
