A wash of words and
he’d got me
a brushstroke blue-jean greeting
‘hi, howareya’

Quivering in my
Static stilletoes
Uncomposed, all rhythm gone
‘um,fine thanks’

His curling smile-sneer
Lascivious lipped,
affection affected.
The ground shifted

I breathe in his effort scent,
and beer breath,
Pheromone filled
as cheap cologne

the movie in my mind
sees the handshake
as entwined torsos, arms, legs.
Then he moves on.
