again you expose
the small of your back
as you bend to pick up
a paper from the floor
it’s all so casual yet
my speech still
falters momentarily
as I long to reach out
run two fingers softly across
your pale patch of skin
causing you perhaps
to turn into my arms
to accept solace and love
with our embrace
instead you stand
turn towards me
without pause
the  conversation
not noticing the remnants
of my desire beyond
a slight quizzical glance
as I finish my discussion
of whatever triviality
is at hand.
