A Man's Desire

Sarah Sheppard, 2011

Your strawberry
lipstick smears
my cheek when you
kiss me for the
last time. When

you walk out of
my bedroom in
your tight jeans,
big hips
swaying, I can see

the butterfly
tattoo from your
left hip, just under
the white sweater
your mother gave
you for Christmas.

I want to drag
my lips across those
black wings. If
only you would
stay another night,

then we could
watch that movie
you wanted to see,
and I could cook you
dinner and watch you
fall to sleep.
