we make love instead


nouns and verbs
scrambled like eggs
women I know
short skirts and legs,

hanging around
watching the sky
days like phone poles
whizzing right by,

should I be normal
should I be straight
standing here
at your front gate,

ringing the bell
rehearsing my line
how are you doing
you say 'just fine',

awkward smile
ten second delay
trying to think
what I should say,

'come on in'
take off your coat
I'll make you
a root-beer float,

that's what we do
two straws, one mug
foreheads together
we chug-a-lug,

sit on the sofa
kick off our shoes
you're probably wise
my un-subtle ruse,

you ask how I like
breakfast eggs cooked
I fumble with how
your bra-strap is hooked,

you say it was nice
for me to stop by
in the neighborhood
my story, my lie,

tongues touch
fingers entwine
you open up
a bottle of wine,

only one glass
we share the delight
the bottle lasts
most of the night,

almost slow motion
no rush to perform
no longer kids
some college dorm,

you drift off to sleep
my hand on your thigh
cracks on the ceiling
the night sky,

I wake with you standing
hot morning brew
I like the sight
of all of you,

you set the cups down
climb back into bed
the coffee can wait
we make love instead ..
