    this is not a drill
    this is not another love poem
    there's such a glut in the
    market..can you say b-o-r-i-n-g????!!!

    and who else cares about the
    earthquake you cause in
    me?

    (they should start naming earthquakes,
    don't you think? we could start with you)

    ...it's not like nobody else has
    ever felt a life-changing tremor,
    or a heart-stopping aftershock...right?

    this is not a drill

    so why should i belabor the
    issue and flood the pages
    with so many words
    that only take up the
    precious space
    i really need to fill with me
    on you in me
    ?

    i don't want to waste
    any more time
    or ink
    or breath that i could
    be using pleasure-panting
    in perfect rhythm with you

    ..essence-swapping...

    this is not a drill...

    no one can possibly understand
    us any better than us
    and you've even said it's quite
    probable that we don't
    understand any of this our damnselves

    shooooot!

    there's no need and it's useless
    for me to try to explain how
    you touched me inside
    and placed something so deep in there
    that you not only need to come see about it,
    you need to take it out, fluff it up
    whack it around a few times,
    then give me some more

    and you need to do it soon
    (**** what i said about waiting forever)

    so ok mr. mechanic?
    time to slip under my hood
    with the dip stick
    my oil is low
    time for my lube job
    and rotate my tires while you're down there

    it's time for
    my 3,000-mile tune up

    ...i digress
    cuz that's not really the point

    and this is not a drill

    why would anyone else be
    interested in the empty tombs we are
    that
    miraculously transform and blend into
    the softest, warmest womb when we
    lock in our multi/sensual embraces
    trading sexual secrets with all those
    nasty looks on our faces...??

    no, uh uh, this is not another syrupy
    sweet love poem
    for you


    AND THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT A DRILL!!!

    this is
    one of those courtesy
    notices that never comes when it's
    time to get all the emergency supplies
    together to last at least a week

    cuz the seismologist predicts
    a very BIG one this time... :)

    well now

    even when you are not writing a "syrupy" love poem, you're so good at it..

    and it seems like you have all you need down in that shelter to deal with any earthquake..

    I like what you do with words..
