work lines
by: allison ryder

ciroc kiss, berry lips,
it was a long time coming.
alcohol infused actions
only assisted the inevitable.
mindless sweeps of intimacy
were an everyday occurrence.
nothing ever escalated
in the passion of the night-
in the place where intimacy crept
the walls. where men and women
entered a world of sensural romance
and desire. then one night,
words were delivered
with actions to follow. about time.
maybe impending departure
made it easier, made it alright
to cross the line.
