Hard to Swallow


            

 

It was a crowded bus
that allowed me   
the proximity of him.


The relative humidity

was climbing
as my eyes took him in…
the opened shirt
the stressed jeans,
the crossed leg upon the bent knee.


I tried hard not to stare
at the size of his boots,
wondering - aimlessly
if it gave any credence to

the analogy it emulates


I pulled my lip into my mouth
biting hard in contemplation,
smiling my most cheshire grin


Such truths ,
analogically speaking
would be hard to swallow!

Lol, I just follow where my muse leads! ...thank you, Paloma!
This is superbly delicious in its subtle naughtiness. This might be my favorite sexy writing of all time! It's remarkable the way you twisted an old familiar & crass idiom into something so fresh & flirty & fun & full of nuance! If I were to highlight my favorite phrases, I'd end up re-posting most of this in my review!

....lol, thank you, Terry! ; )
the "whimsy" is absolutely perfect. Should I ever meet the lady I think may be you, don't be staring across the aisle at my feet. I don't wear boots and my feet are short...but take heart--they are not a descriptive analogy of ALL of me! :-)
