CROWN PREP
(2/26/16)


the dental tech
leans unconsciously
into me

her hip
firmly
against my shoulder

breasts
just inches
from my
nose

as close
as I've been
to a woman
in almost
two years

but if I were
to put a hand
in place
of my shoulder

or lean
forward
just a bit

there would
be trouble

authorities
would be
alerted

strange

I shouldn't
dwell

at least
the notion
keeps my mind
distracted
from the discomfort
that her fingers
are causing
in my mouth

no one's
arresting
her
for that
