instant gratification.

“I don’t know what that means,”
she said,
“to take things slow
because I only know lust.
I only know what it means
to want
the physical body,
to not know your favorite color
or deepest secret
or proudest dream
or highest hope.
To know those things
would be the same as
stripping down to your most naked form,
beyond skin and bones.”
I have never asked those things
of any man
because no one has ever asked the same
of me.
