The Affair

I came to your door
But before I made a sound
It opened like a yawn
said you were expecting me
I told you why I was here
I wanted photos
Of an affair
Because I never had one
You took my clothes off
I undressed you
We set the timer
looked through the lens
Held hands naked
Surpressed giggles
And waited for a flash
Then we played in the
Sand box in the corner
Of the room
To the sounds
of waves and sea
We built dreams
out of sandcastles
Then we made love
Like it was a new toy
Then you wrote
A poem in almost
aubergine lipstick
On my back
Told me learn it by heart
Then you put my shirt on
And told me leave

When I got home
I kissed my wife
Judas style
Went to the shower
Peeled my shirt off
Looked behind my shoulder
Saw a delicious poem
In the mirror
Learnt it by heart
It said “come again
Wednesday 3.30”
She signed it with
The rouge of her lips
Then I washed it off
But my heart
Is beating
to a different rhythm
And I can’t wait
for my next poem.
