By Michael Lee Johnson


Lorie, you want to see me clearly
through this joy of my naked body
avoiding the sweat of my emotions,
just breathing on my neck
rubbing this baseline of my groin --
will not find us here again.
Go away, leave me thinking
louder than your breath --
body moves quietly
in a lazy sway of indifference.
