About Last Night…

Being a novice in these matters,
I was duped.
I took the smile and wink
Given over Tuesday tequila
To mean love, or something like it.
The sweaty romp between
Egyptian cotton climaxed
With fury and need.
The desperate hunger
Of a single moment in time
And weakened inhibitions.

You see, purity is overrated,
Despite patriarchal claims.
Being a novice in these matters, I was duped.
