The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.
One of them
Missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
Car wouldn’t start.
Get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..
Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,
This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment
sext:i put my tongue in your ear and out of your mouth comes a breathy song of "more more more"
sext:i want to fuck you so hard against the seats of your mom's van that your little brother's soccer medal falls off the rearview mirror.
sext:i am a boiling burner, you are a pot of water. you get hot on top of me until i make you overflow.
sext:you leave crisscrossed scratch marks on my back to keep yourself from being loud. in the locker room the next day, someone asked me if i've been hurt and all i can do is moan your name.
sext:you look so good in those jeans, i want to invite you over to eat ice cream.
sext:we take a hot bath together and come out smelling like each other.
sext:park your car by the elementary school, i want to count your ribs with my mouth
sext:i write you novels full of sexually frustrated poetry and finally, take a cue from vampire weekend and ask, "do you want to fuck, like you know i do?"
sext:you do too. "oxford comma" plays while we do it. we treat having sex like sailing on a summer's day on the east coast. you taste like sunscreen and the salt breeze. as soon as it's done, i want you again.
