Cheeky

She was my favourite cousin,
barely ten,
and sleeping over.
I could not rest that night
and paced the hallway.
The door was there
so sudden,
like a welcome apparition.
And well-oiled hinges
let me have a peek
at little Gina's
moonlit other cheek.

I'm laughing my own sweet cheeks off. Funny, bad boy! ! t x
Guffaw Guffaw (is that how you spell it?) Anyway, this charming piece gave me a belly laugh and a bloody big 'un at that! Best Jayne
Cheeky indeed! In more ways than one it seems.
Some of the best verse can be found in capturing the simplest of observations!
