Pleasure piece

Is this a pleasure piece,

you know like those that

give delight, like in afternoons

spent lazing on the lounge

where nothing’s expected or gained.

Or is it something more

heady, like nose bleeds that

spur panic moments, or two,

when no where near

tissues or hankies that will

stem the flow until pressure

is applied by fingers only

an arm’s distance away.

Is this a piece that

pleases because others say so,

because they know the difference

and you don’t? That it’s

already defined and therefore accepted

as fitting a certain condition

or category or pigeon hole.

Or is it a pleasure

piece because it simply has

the word pleasure in it?

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
