Occupatio

Definition: A rhetorical scheme that allows one to describe something while simultaneously denying that the description of said thing is taking place. Application: I will not wonder whether fat flakes of snow hit your cheeks this evening, too. Will not indulge in peanut butter, or use it as a mortar to build a graham-cracker house. Definitely will not call to wish you good night. After all, I never heard your hidden things; I only knew that your lips felt like leaves bursting into color. But I won’t remind you of that. This is, in fact, the last poem I will ever write about you. Because I want to be kind. And not to remember.

She has to leave him,
That guy that everybody and yet
Nobody knows,
That guy called Prince Charming.
Because her castle’s made of
White paper and Scotch tape,
And time will rip it away
And leave no hint that it was there.

She shivers, hesitates,
Because he’s encouraging her
To cheat on her love,
To turn her back on everything
She believes in and wants to
Follow all the days of her life—
Real love over lust.

He whispers her only defense against
Time is to tear down the castle herself
And fling away her Prince’s
Paper dreams—-to end it with passion,
Rather than watch it flake away
Under time’s touch.

She shivers, hesitates,
Knows love is for the strong.
She wonders as strange lips trace her neck

Whether she’s strong enough to break away.
