Kiss the Accent

A mutual attraction instinct,
preceded by sexual innuendo.
Honourable intentions
or desire for perverse pleasure.
You offer no indication
as to your motivation.
Tell me it’s my accent.
But you can’t kiss an accent.

But I would kiss you.
In the still of a
Lexington Avenue night.
Kiss your tanned body all over.
Til morning interrupted
the pleasure with the pain
of trivial matters wanting attention.
Awake to fear and insecurity.
