Can I?

I don’t even know what to call it
that furry thing you wear around your neck
it’s not a scarf,
nor is it a necklace
but can I take it off
just so I can hear you say
no
when I try to kiss your neck?
There’s nobody around
so can I
work on the clips that hold
your stockings up
just so I can hear you say
no
when I caress your thigh?
It’s only the two of us
sitting silent
and you imagining
how to get out of here
so can I
ask you to take of your hat
just so I can hear you say
no
when I smell your hair?
It’s only us and you know where the door is
so can I
ask you to love me
so I can hear you say
no,
no,
no,
yes.

Can I?
