Brain freeze

† †
I missed your mouth and got †  
vanilla ice cream †  
on your chin, †  
and you are so †  
completely ridiculous † †
about it † †
my heart † †
moves from †  
my chest to the †  
corners of my mouth. †  
† †
Or maybe it just feels that †  
way as we argue about †  
ice cream, † †
and depravation, † †
and intent †  
† †
I laugh so fucking hard † †
I realize I had to † †
stop arguing † †
and fight dirty †  
if I was going to win †  
† †
I lean forward †  
to lick it off your chin, † †
† †
because I generally win †  
fights by taking off my clothes, †  
but Dairy Queen has a policy † †
against that. †  
† †
I wince as I rocked †  
on the hard † †
vinyl seat, † †
† †
wince because † †
Iím †  
† †
still soreÖ †  
† †
and my eyes dart down †  
my cheeks flush, †  
the flashback †  
of my ankles on your † †
shoulders †  
while you † †
fucked the † †
bottom of my †  
lungs out, †  
slaps me †  
into a full-body †  
goosebump †  
† †
My hands shake as I † †
put the little red plastic †  
spoon into the paper cup †  
† †
and I swallow so hard †  
Iím afraid I may † †
choke †  
on desire †  
† †
I miss your chin with my tongue, †  
the irony is lost on the † †
people passing by; †  
and the air changes as † †
I infect you with my need. †  
† †
We make it through the door †  
before our clothes are † †
half off † †
and our bodies are †  
flushed † †
and damp † †
and starved † †
for more than †  
fucking ice cream †  
† †
Iím tight. † †
Tender. † †
Swollen † †
from †  
you pounding † †
me senseless †  
† †
and I whimper a little at the †  
pain-relief † †
of you pushing † †
into me †  
as my legs find their †  
spot around your waist †  
† †
my shoulder blades etch † †
in the door, † †
my mascara runs †  
and I sob your name † †
like a hymn when I come †  
† †
and Iím pretty sure we † †
freaked out the † †
Amazon delivery dude † †
so bad that weíll need to † †
start going to stores again †  
† †
And itís worth it. † †
† †
Fuck, itís worth it †  
because your pace †  
quickens and †  
I can feel your breath in my ear †  
feel you † †
tense †  
tighten †  
explode with a † †
low growl your chest †  
† †
and the world goes still †  
as the shockwaves † †
rip through us. † †
† †
Your come runs down my †  
inner thigh as you set me down †  
and my legs buckle. †  
† †
So we laugh again and watch †  
the blob slide down † †
and hit my ankle †  
† †
You kiss me. †  
Wipe tear tracks from the corner † †
of my eyes with your thumbs †  
and ask if Iím alright †  
† †
And I lie and say I am. †  
Just sad that † †
I lost my ice cream. †  
† †
Also, my ankle is † †
wet and cold † †
† †
As you scoop me in your arms, still laughing, † †
and carry me to the bedroom †  
I know Iím not alright at all. †  
† †
Something happened when † †
my heart left my chest † †
and rested on the corners †  
of my mouth †  
† †
somehow, † †
our lips touched †  
and it jumped on you †  
like a † †
fourth-grade cootie †  
† †
And the ache † †
when I inhale is † †
as tender, † †
as sweet †  
and † †
as deliciously † †
painful †  
† †
as the ache is † †
when I †  
lean forward † †
in a chair †  
† †
And Iím not ok, †  
because † †
arching into you †  
makes the † †
soft pain better †  
† †
arching into you †  
† †
makes the †  
soft † †
pain †  
worse †
