Afternoon Delight

Today between meetings and greetings,
snail mails, emails, texts, messages,
essay grades, caffeine breaks, and so on,
in the mirky waters of the
relentless tasks of the
workday, I wrote
a love poem,
let it sneak up on me,
drop from my ear lobe,
slip down my collar,
roll over my shoulder,
spread itself wide to drip
the curve of my spine,
lick my fingertips. I
left them keys sticky.
Yes, I did; yes,
I did.
