The one night stand, deconstructed.


Yesterday with a tumult in her eyes
she tried kissing me and I don't know rightly why
but I'm about to be caught up in the storm she brews next to me

keeping my body warm in this double bed
that perhaps from too much drink I had let her in
and I can't allow her to think she's got the upper hand

but I can't recall her name and she's lying on
my arm that's half asleep and my knighted pawn
moves To the words she speaks in the morning light
Her skin a sheath of down and her heavy sigh
the wind before the storm that she clarifies

"yesterday when I saw you standing there in the dim lit bar
with your wild unkempt hair your eyes seeing far
as though set on something wrong in a distant land

"and I could tell your Will was strong in your heart and hands
as though you needed to correct some small Accident
and if I would interject myself in your plans
you change my insides for the better

and she moved her hand astride my listening ear
and she moved her body hi on my body and
we unmade the day with that gruesome act
of napalm and cake and her hurricane
scooped the dirt from my guts the Scum from my brain
and for a moment we were one
and all but the same
