she stretched
forever the length of my vinyl couch her long legs they
flowed as water flows from dark soil
underneath her blue silk blouse of evening flowers inviting
seduction and what the lights did to her lips how the shadows
blessed her body, slowly, I forgot to be decent again
                           slowly, I unlearned decency and
prayed for a chance I sat I laughed
I watched
pulled close by her short breaths and
pushed further away by childish laughter,
I tilted the chair
sat uncomfortably
distanced myself
      can she know?
