Christina Quinn Fort Pierce, FL poet

lust

i cant remember the last time we made love
or who was doing who
a favor
it felt rotational like the large hand of a clock close to midnight
look now it’s 11:56
then we 11:57ed & 11:58ed
until the siss bang boom of the midnight hour
i should have appreciated more

it has to have been 18 months
wouldn’t you say
although i think you don’t/can’t remember such things as
milestones
busy as you are in sobriety & blessedness
oh & cooking
while i have nothing to occupy my mind but memories

the time we pulled over on artsmith trail
in broad daylight
front seats collapsed
people walking their dogs a few yards from our breathless sex
oh that’s right
you dont remember those drunken fumblings in unzippered pants
now a zipped up memory
you are recovered
while i am uncovered
naked in want
like an alcoholism of lust
