Foreplay

An hour to dedicate to her thoughts,
Absorb them, then erupt with the images
she has filled herself with, temporary
relief of the dirtiness that intimacy
had become, a trade of the deceit,
humiliation, next few hours
experimentation, passion.
Filled her mind with unreal images,
Photographs of an interlude she did not have
But convinced her mind for a short while
That she was there and could be, then at home
He put out her fire, doused with water
When it should have been saturated with wine.
