She tried on the red Korean high heels
and put them on the small worn suitcase
doubling as a display stand walked
to the front door with the bell
and I looked at the handle worried
that I’d pull when I should push
but she stopped before I could find out
looked at me like she needed permission
tried the shoes on again while I tweeted
something she said earlier about her
wardrobe being too full to hold Narnia.
I bought four records and ten movies that day
and one of them was Batman’s sex tape.
