the flirt

there is still an innocence
thrown into the mix bag of
age & experience,
rolled up in something of a
carpet roll of stress &
a lack of time to spend on
any real connection beyond
the immediate fleeting moments,
which dwells in 
the flirt---
flirtation takes us back to the
playground,
where stirrings become succulent
as words drip off our tongues &
smiling is okay,
laughing is okay,
light touching & whatever else
gets thrown into that personal
zone of 
agreed upon intimacy in a 
public setting---
perhaps it’s not even a public 
setting---
it can take place at school,
can take place in a work environment,
it can take place
wherever we choose to show our
feathers,
while at the same time,
exhibit restraint in the
present---
so our hormones may very well
still be racing, so our wants may
very well be pumping at full
throttle,
but one may go even further to 
pose that flirting can be more satisfying
than sex itself,
because it never gets polluted---
that is, if you have lived any number of years,
you know that sex loses its flame,
regardless of how you come about it---
you need to recharge that flame
any number of ways or
leave the individual in question,
so as to start over &
the whole thing starts with
allowing the fuse lit in 
the embers of sexual tension
that flirting 
fans.

enjoy the lack!
enjoy the innuendos, the fantasies of
what it would be like
if…
