The revolving doll

She is
no more than a memory
that never happened

yet I insist
on recalling every detail
of times not spent together

She is
no more than imagination
a favored temple prostitute

and still
I yearn for the holy shrine
of a year’s past pilgrimage

She is
not really real
just a shot of chemicals

or perhaps
I have swaggered
into another pharmacy of lust

with empty bottles
and a rare red fist.
