His Precious Moment

He needs this moment
As it overflows
Thick
Onto black leather boots

While they in turn
Stick
To beer brawl carpets
Cigarette butts and 3am shots

Its crazy fucked up
And he loves it
Like the warm beating rush
Of amphetamine on raw membrane
And its sweet howl for more

He eyes it
Pensively, as if his moment’s strength
Might fake an orgasm
And rush white-eyed out the door

So as if to tempt it’s fate
His throbbing finger
Flicks the latch
And with the silence of an owl
Lets it in
