Will You Wear An Earring

Will you wear an earring
for me
clasp it to your flesh
never mind the bruise
never mind the pain.
Will you wear this earring
and give me a lip-sticky kiss.

Will you wear my earring
make a little hole
in your skin
in your ear
pierce it
carefully thread it through
and give me a lip-sticky kiss
then let me see
the writings
and pictures
on your skin.

Will you wear this earring
or will you keep your skin
clear as a baby’s
aged like fine wine
