House Parties (Summer ’19)

Brazen conquest ensues
Where tipsy minds find comfort
With full mouths and spritely hands
That covet lustful intoxication,

But a door ajar is simply no match
For makeup stained shirts
And masculine musk
That necessitates thoughtless pursuit

Where the most unlikely of suitors
Stands caressed by hands unkempt
And contorted by lacquered vision
And rouge lips that speak but one truth,

That sweet liquor unlocks momentary pleasure, never lasting.
