There will be a swallow,
A gulp or galumph,
A hitch in the blink;
Perhaps a harrumph.

The left hand’s important,
Or maybe the right.
The gaze is too loose,
Or was it too tight?

Over-specifics,
Unasked-for details;
Changing the subject:
That oneĀ  never fails.

Defense against lies:
Your loins you must gird.
But if she says “I love you”
Believe every word.
