ringer #4

it begins
or so
i’ve heard
with teeny letters
on a small
glowing square
really
T9Word-ian replies
to touchscreen
QWERTY desires
the buzzing of
the arrival of
the first
gently rouses
but
the words…
there is no
easing in
and so it starts
perfectly
timed
wonderfully
received
each missive
inspired by
and building on
the previous
if some words are
escalators
these are the
space shuttle
sucka
images of
dream-inspiring
legs around waist
around two am
the twitching hour
nails meet
back
mouth meets
fucking everything
big fingers having
a hard time
saying what they
want to say
i wasn’t trying to type “cumulus”
but they’re
more nimble
in other situations
promise!
and so it is
and so it goes
unspoken
(recently, anyway)
desire
finds the path
of not even
a little resistance
moments shared
from a distance
missing
cured
desire
fueled
further
thoughts of
the next time
pull forth
a wry smile
and now

sleep
