Sweet Talk -- Billy Collins

Notes from YouTube - The poet's witty ploy to get a Bohemian to sleep with him. Maybe a little art and some absinthe is all he needs?

This poem is reminiscent of Andrew Marvel's 17th century poem, "To His Coy Mistress", in which he coaxes a reluctant woman to sleep with him.
