I drove you to the point that night
the familiar one,
where the tunnel ends
it has a magnificent view
your favorite

the familiar motions occur
but tonight
you’re not interested.

that’s ok,
i’m still here with
her

I begin to draw circles with
my index finger
on her instrument
her quick excitement startles me
and i now focus my attention on
her stick.

it moves quite freely within
her grooves
she lets me know
it’s time to move on,
so i attend to
her brightness.

i slowly pull
her switch.
slowly, in and out
faster and faster
her fuse breaks,
she has reached ecstasy
i push another one of her switches
she lights my cigarette
