The Shoes of Distraction

Note: This poem was inspired by "Navy Blue," one of the 13 pieces in Howard Barker's "13 Objects: Studies in Servitude."

Sex! For my very first time sex!
Full of innocent nervousness,
The one I love wants me!
Tension fills the air - we run, we laugh.
Must calm the butterflies somehow.
A distraction might work - look a shoe!
It worked too well. Stop! Look at me!
Don't you want me anymore?
