Guys Next Door

By March 11, 2023No Comments

Eyes, turquoise Blue

Lips, luscious

Complexions, dark

Thin, tall, leaning on,
Guys in the neighbourhood are delicious

They walk down the block, air quiver
Flutters this yearning of mine ‘round their body

From the tips of their crisp fronds drips a fruity fragrance

They love water water
They love Jasmines
They love my cheeks and they love Jasmines and my cheeks

And, all of a sudden
Right this minute
They Want

To push

Their head In and Out and InAndOut Of my Skirt

And right this minute
Napping on my lap

They Want
To wrap like steelsilk ‘round my neck like rain pouring hard

Right this Minute

They Want
