Frederick R. Cumagun

from In Her Room


      She starts from the bottom
      buttoning each button.
      The further she climbs
      the harder it is
      to button buttons.

      He starts from the top
      untying the tie.
      The farther he goes down
      the faster he goes
      unbuttoning buttons.
