Dean and Deluca
by Susan H. Maurer

  1. I ordered pain
  2. You did not flinch
  3. Your rabbit face was blank
  4. Pamplemousse, café au lait
  5. And little bread with chocolate
  6. Has anyone else ordered pain, I ask
  7. You do not smile
  1. This is an advertisement to unknown persons
  2. I’d like you to come alone or one-by-one
  3. For pain removal, by van or limo, or by hand
  4. This appeal to unknown faces
  5. If I write it, will they come
