     Barney pretended surprise when Candace shyly revealed her glass eye.  "I hadn't noticed."  He boldly lied.  In fact the eye had initially drawn him to her.  Even now at the heady apex of a three-week whirlwind of innocent hand-holding romance it remained the focus of his hidden carnal agenda.

She Sits

She sits in her cool dark basement,
Patiently counting the cats on the walls,
and stubbornly resists the madman who calls.
She persists while he insists
that she and the cats,
aren't really there at all.
