    a slender flexible rod
    she was his switch
    he would flip her up to turn her on
    shift her down when he was done.

    one motion from his finger
    she was to be ignored
    swapped for another’s attention
    usually done in secret

    though weakened by craftiness
    captive by her own naivety
    strong feelings of observations
    and the obvious displayed their talents

    her waves traveled fresh frequency
    diverting current to a new conductor
    exchanging her usual composer
    electrocuting his heart into four syllables
    re·gret·ta·ble

    so lets all feel sorry for him
    show no compassion for her
