the ten minute poem

we made love quickly
with a chair leaned up against your door
because our bodies and hearts
were mad for each other
and I had always wanted to
lock a door with a chair
like I had seen in so many movies

you asked me not to move in such a way
said you wanted it to last longer
but there is only one way I could move
closer to you
as close as I had ever been
and you pulled away
and took my body with you
until I told you I couldn't take any more

we kissed and we laughed
and I let one of those thoughts
about one of those boys
that didn't know how to love me
crawl into my head as I fixed my hair in your mirror
and I could see you behind me
and a piece of me felt sorry for them
and closer to you
