Closing the door behind her
This is the transition, the melting
What occurs when soft cello replaces traffic horns

She is:
Unbuttoned and starch free
Relaxed; so inclined
Allowing for deliberations; for pampering

His kisses are:
Thorough, but redundant
Reviewing ground previously covered

Sanctuary -
He steps in amid a flourish of horns
and expert choreography; the transition
That occurs when function precedes form

She is:
Off-guard and unshielded
Curiously wrong-footed
But thoroughly diplomatic in defeat

Her kisses are:
Discreet, but redundant
An opening gambit
In homage to a fallen prince
