Attitude To A Miss

Attitude To A Miss

That night was to decide
If she and I
Were to be lovers.
Under cover
Of darkness
No one would see, you see.
I bent over her, it’s the truth,
And as I did,
It’s the truth, I swear it,
I said
Like a kindly parent:
“Passion’s a precipice –
So won’t you please
Move away?
Move away,
Please!”



Poem Attitude To A Miss - Vladimir Mayakovsky
