I will not be your side-attraction
pulled out for just a day or
I will neither put a face to your dirtiest fantasies
nor reign in your raging lusts; tame them to a whisper,
only to then be stuffed back into the dense darkness
to fight for breathing space
with the skeletons in your closet.
No, you’re not allowed
to live out your desires with me
not for two hours
not for four.
you shamelessly offer to me
assets you’ve vowed to another
while she crows & boasts
in teemingly public places,
blissfully unaware of your straying eyes,
your hungry tongue
and your fickle fidelity.
