Briefest Moments
It’s the eyes
Those globes of gelatin

Vortices of iridescence
As they dance with one another
back and forth

Neither interested but both willing
Each cat & mouse in their own internal chase

Perhaps it’s your look of desire
the warmth of their touch
Maybe vice versa
though neither
can overpower

that fatal inertia

It doesn’t matter if one or t’other
is already engaged

Those thieving glances belie the want:
to be caressed
embraced and
consumed

Either way
real want is
null
and

void
