The Before and The After


Readers Aged:  18+

“The Before” is just as good as “the After”

But “the Before” is all for “the After”

And “the Before” doesn’t exist if I can’t have “the After”

Following after her lines

Tracing my fingertips across her shoulders

Gliding my hands down her back before her thighs

And the kissing of her neck, then shoulders, and hips after

She lays there in shadow

With her hair tumbling before her shoulders

Into the bend of her elbow

Leaving the currency of the “After”

In payment

As the last scene I spy

Before I close my eyes
