The first time
that I fucked you
was in my mind
entirely
in my mind
which was exactly as it should be
for I was 12 years old
and would never have known
what to put where
and when
but you were a vision
all tanned legs and long curly hair
and I had to learn your name
had to learn your name
was Thyra
and the games we played
entirely
in my mind
would have made Anaïs Nin blush
even though I had no idea
who Anaïs Nin was
because I was 12, yo


The second time
that I fucked you
was in my mind
entirely
in my mind
which was exactly as it should be
for I was living with your friend
and she would have never understood
the lewd flesh sculptures we were forming
and why
but you were a vision
with your sexy smile and mischievous eyes
and I silently mouthed your name
silently mouthed your name
you, Thyra
and the lust we shared
entirely
in my mind
would have made Barry White blush
even though I’d never heard
a Barry White song
I was a punk rocker, you know


The third time
that I fucked you
was in my mind
entirely
in my mind
which was exactly as it should be
for you were living with my friend
and it would have broken his heart
to know I was seducing your body
and mind
but you were a vision
with your perfect breasts and come hither look
and I spoke your name aloud
spoke your name aloud
yes, Thyra
and the wild love we made
entirely
in my mind
would have made Ron Jeremy blush
even though I could never stand
to watch one of his movies
he’s a fat, disgusting pig, isn’t he?


The last time
that I fucked you
was in my mind
entirely
in my mind
which is exactly as it should be
for even though you’re my wife now
I still dream about you
every single night
and day
and you are a vision
with your non-judgmental love and your welcoming arms
and I scream your name with love
scream your name with love
my Thyra
and the crazy lust we’re sharing now
entirely
in my mind
is fantastic enough to make Annie Sprinkle blush
even though you have no idea
who the hell Annie Sprinkle is
you should look her up, I think

I don’t know who Annie Sprinkle is, either…  Guess that’s okay, though as this isn’t about me!  :D  Nicely done, David!  Very nicely done!  :)

Some people,
no matter what you give them,
still want the moon.

The bread,
the salt,
white meat and dark,
still hungry.

The marriage bed
and the cradle,
still empty arms.

You give them land,
their own earth under their feet,
still they take to the roads.

And water: dig them the deepest well,
still it’s not deep enough
to drink the moon from.

If we fell in love
in the summer we could roadtrip
from my family on the winding coast
to yours in the heated south.
I don’t much like cars
but you love your little red compact from the 90s
enough for both of us.
It’s would take a few days
but we like the same…
