Two Of Swords

how nice
to walk
on a
just mopped

floor with

freshly washed

feet flattening

the curve

of the
arches buffing
the toe
in-betweens so
smooth no
lint to
catch as
if friction-
less interiors
were possible
the mop
bucket still
drying upside
down ENERGETICALLY

visible the
juncture where
we came
last night
XX on
my chest
and stomach
routing to
the bellybutton-
cum-cum
gutters I
can never
be certain
of the
VELOCITY of
cum never
know exactly
WHEN or
HOW much
