Without rest, I said. Urgent. I’ve day-dreamed
enough for two. “Yet it’s just you. What changed?”
That’s the thing. Nothing. I had hoped. It seemed
different. Everyone thinks they want deranged
passion … until they finally have to act
on it. Still, no means no. That’s what matters.
“You could wait.” I did. I let things distract
me. I’m saucy, not cruel. This world pressures
us. I won’t add more. Instead I’ll lick dried
pleasure off these fingers. Inspiration
must sleep somewhere else and I have defied
the gods long enough hoping for passion,
frenzy and someone who loves cock and cunt
as well. —Urgent, I say. —This is urgent.
