MARGINAL CONTACT
(7/19/18)

we sit
in silence

late
in the day
there is
nothing
to say

she leans
against
me

her
outer thigh
touching
my upper
arm

the sensation
is pleasant

bordering
upon sensual

this is
the closest
that I've been
to a woman
since
the last time
that I was
here

she shifts
slightly

sighs

as we
relax
within the reprieve
of this air conditioned
comfort
on a
100 degree
summer
afternoon

both waiting
for the dentist

whom she
will assist

in fixing
my shitty
teeth
