2020-09-25 – So, Martha

so Martha,
shall we dance?

look, the chaperones are
leaking gossip and
watching..

eyes peeled
and stuck,

drunk on whatever’s spiked
the punch, munching on
store bought tarts
and buttered
popcorn,

stares drooling
like we’re
porn,

..well, Martha
it’s our last
chance,

and wallflowers are
now the wallpaper
peeling from
our eyes,

chaperones are watching,
scribbling crib
notes..

so, Martha.. let’s
ghost them
all..

++++

as glow of our
closing kiss..

spreads smooth
‘tween parted thighs.
