She met me for lunch today,
wearing a blue dress
and fishnet leggings.
For lunch.
At this casual place
down the street from me.
I was going to break up with her
but I couldn’t once
she showed up like that.
In that tight blue dress.
Her lips bright red.
She said she was already wet,
just thinking about having sex
after lunch.
I told her I was hard
before we ordered,
and then we left without eating.
She’ll never let me
break up with her.
