Early Late Early Sweat


I like your hair a little red
I like that twinkle in your eye
The light through the curtain blinded you too
Your butt a little too big for your thong
I like your thighs apart just so

I like the smell of Cuervo on your breath
Your panties around your ankles
The phone stopped ringing at noon
I like to see the tears in your bra
The line of spittle down your face
With thriftstore lust

Your fingers on the side of your lips
The blood spots that aren’t yours
I like my hands clenched in the sheets
The wisp of hair, unshaven at the crease
I like the look in your eyes
As you turn me over

I like it when my breath catches
And you push
like that
