Feathers in KY Jelly

by Max Bouillet

"Feathers stick in KY Jelly."
intimate wisdom she would share,
but fail to discuss in detail.

Then she would walk away
while smiling and occasionally
glancing at me over her shoulder.

Now I know she looked back
to see if I would follow.

But back thenÂ…
I was still too busy
plucking feathers.

I like the subtle abstract message here Max of potential relationship,perhaps not to be.
