Random Poem:


i don't know the blues i said
it's fine, i'll teach you she said
where do i hold you i asked
one hand here, the other on my bra clasp she said
like this i asked
yea, and any lower, any woman would slap you she said
how about my legs i asked
a man is like a rock, steady and bent at the knees she said
why is your right leg tucked in between mine, so close to the crotch i asked
it's so you can guide me with your hips, the man always leads she said
i want to dip you, and spin you i said
not before i show you how we connect she said
connect i asked
yes, arm under arm, we have elasticity, connection, do with your hand how my body should react she said
oh my, did i just make your body roll against mine i asked
you're not leading me yet, the dancing is mutual, and eyes up here, not at my chest she said
sorry, i really have no clue where to gaze, i said
nevermind, most guys do that anyway she said
i want to dip you, and spin you, do you trust me now i asked
sure, go on, i trust you she said
so i dipped her
three times
i had only thought of one
but her body said more
then i swung her
back into our close embrace
her temple against mine,
and we clung and swayed
the blue night away.
