love that way again

being an easy lay

she had me from the start

loving those long legs

that she’d bend in such a way

to shove that ass in my sight line

& I was gone

lost in lust


whatever small beef lay between us

my thinking out the window

along with any dignity

a man feels he might have

& if I could have her back tomorrow

I’d try to gracefully decline

as much in regret as sorrow

I no longer have the years to come

the time in patience needed

begged stolen borrowed

to love that way again
