  You could have a big dipper   

Past Prologue by Adrienne Crezo

give me my

impatient traffic

in bed with all this freedom

from discovery

oh yes you do take control

oh yes

look, i couldn't stop, i had to

fall in good and willing

i want you again may i show you

here i am gold-pressed

i gambled everything

it's hard for me making a fool of myself

as many times as you like

and i — i'm on board

i promise:

you and i


surrender the old ways

one day
