Is this temporary?
her tongue has swiped my dick right
and now her head rests at my chest
exposing her nicely shaped earlobe.
She is a business graduate
working as an assistant to the CEO
of a pharma company.
I tell her I know a lot about pharma --
I know every type of medication
given to treat depression,
anxiety, anger management,
I caress her soft hair and talk about
the chemical messengers between neurons,
like serotonin and norepinephrine.
Neurons won’t get fired
across the synapse
if there aren’t enough of these chemicals,
and that is how the anti-depressants work —
by increasing their levels
and boosting the brain func —
that is when she bites my nipple.
It is obviously very important
to not quit the medication suddenly,
you must taper off,
then I stop talking.
She doesn’t care about all this.
She cares more about the top line
and the bottom line of the company,
preparing daily, weekly, and monthly
financial reports for the CEO.
The first day she joined
she had a crush on him.
He has a muscular built, she said, and
he was wearing a shirt
that allowed the contours of his physique to be felt
if not seen,
She flushed when they were in the same room alone
and she felt there was a definite ‘sexual tension’
across the table.
This went on for a while,
but she gave up,
realizing he wouldn’t do anything about this situation,
him being married and all.
So now she represses her urge
to fuck him on the conference table
by downloading reports
from an MIS dashboard,
printing two sets,
arranging them in sequence,
and placing them in transparent folders
at his desk
underneath a paperweight sized wooden elephant,
incidentally the mascot of the company.
Elephants have really large penises, I mused,
but that has probably no relevance.
Anyways this is what I said to her
when she told me about him —
I am a little disappointed in your story.
It lacks heroic resolution.
What does she want to know?
Her bare back gently rises and falls.
Is this temporary?
probably what she means to ask is:
where is your integrity?
do you have some?
are you a man of your words?
how long can this be satisfying?
am I boring you?
An elephant sits at the edge of this room
his big penis dangling.
Have I told you yet?
my favorite porn star died unexpectedly.
She raises her head to face me.
at just twenty-nine too,
what a waste of potential!
