Love Madness

Itís after ten
and youíre working
the early shift
but you open the door
anyway
when you see him
smiling and standing
outside.

Your skin
is ready for his hands
and mouth before he
even crosses the threshold.
The sheets begin singing
and the cold beer
you always keep
in case he comes
pours itself
in his favorite glass.

Heís one of those lovers
you know canít possibly
be good for you.
But it doesnít matter
because itís August
over a hundred degrees
and he makes
your legs melt.
