X Marks the Spot

I ask her
what she needs
and she tells me:

She wants to be
loved and accepted,
treasured
but not put
on a pedestal,
understood
but not condescended to,
pleasured
but not abused
to death,
given to but not taken from,
joined but not ripped off,
licked and stirred,
kissed and fondled,
cuddled not coddled,
respected not blamed,
esteemed not given sarcasm,
turned on not turned out,
elevated and supported,
not manipulated or man-handled,
inspired and given intimacy,
freed to be whole
not a hole to be keyed.

I ask if she wants to bang,
and she says that'll work.
We play strip poker
with cards she's marked.
She tells me it's cute.
I ask for her number
and she sexts me.

What was your name again?
I tell her,
but she doesn't remember.
We should have done
the peyote instead.
