I lift weights but don’t have the bulk for presence.
Men don’t enter rooms, we barge into them; think of Paul
Drake and Perry Mason, think of the bulk in those suits.
Think of Della Street; why is she so fawning and efficient?
What does she do when she’s not pursing her lips?
These questions race through my mind as I lay on the mat
in the seclusion room.
Finally, Nurse Judy unlocks the door to ask if she can trust
me on the unit.
Of course, I say yes, wouldn’t you?
I watch the little dimples in her ass appear and disappear
as she leaves to fetch wrist restraints.
When we’re alone, we shall mate like peacocks.
