over here at this table,
we talk …. we communicate
words, sentences, thoughts, feelings ….
or no comprendez vouski ?
friendship formed perhaps
along the shorelines
or does it all just turn to ash ?
she tells me what she likes
so i oblige with vigor,
for these are the morals
of a gentleman, a scholar,
and an animal
when pleasure is the ultimate goal,
intimate howlings occur after dark
with somewhat controlled reckless abandon
deep down between two sugar souls ….
