Get A Room

Let me fan the flames
of your fandom
tickling ‘like’ and painting praise
watching out for typos
You and I
should duck 
out of here
you and I
should get a room

What would we do in there
behind the locking door?
Turn two armchairs facing inwards
swap endless breathless monologues
clinging on to voices
hanging from each word
at what point would we be satisfied
at what point would we be done

Let’s assume 
there’s a bed in that room
or an armchair
or a shower
at what point would we be satisfied
at what point would we feel like one

Afterwards, the peace glide
and searching open eyes
scanning for silent truths
for glimpses of emotion, for clues
at what point would we be satisfied
at what point would it feel enough

There’s an ocean of desire
between your pen and my paper
there’s an ocean of water
between your hem and my wrist

You and I
should duck 
right out of here
you and I 
need to get a room...

Hi Mika, if you want the full experience (not truncated by the WoL player) you can find it and all my other readings here:

In this poem I flirted with the idea of rhyming... amongst other things.

“There’s an ocean of desire between your pen and my paper.” Love that line! Great poem Tom. Makes me think deeper about the connection between poetry and passion. 🖤
