to have something like this

here comes the
anxiety
the sweaty palms
and that uneasy
feeling of the rest
of your life flashing
right before your
eyes
but you look at her
hips
the way that slinky
black dress falls to
the floor
as you go in for a
kiss, you remember
how much you used
to have to pay to have
something like this
you want to believe
real love will be
cheaper in the long
run
at least, that’s what
you are hoping
