One Night Only

One Night Only
Form: Free Verse

What is lust if
it does not gratify the mind
but sates the want of physical need
without desire
for intimacy beyond touch
conversation disregarded
in favour of grunts and groans
a sacrifice for a meaningless act
of another
‘For One Night Only’ show
forgotten before the dawn light
and the craving for a hot coffee
from an all-night drive-thru
a moment lost
until it is recalled by
an STD
