LOVE SIGNS

             LOVE SIGNS

The husband sat beside his wife
That woman-- passion of my life
Her eyes were lowered but their shine
Betrayed her mind saw us entwined
She took a pen in her white hands
Caressed the length, across black bands
Brought the  tip near to her lips
Her tongue flicked out --the pinkest whip
And I, a pen from briefcase took
Swiftly bit it--her  legs shook
And so across the room we loved
But never from his side she  moved.
A  pen, so small,  a simple thing
became accomplice of our fling
