A Guest! by Toure

A knock on the door. A surprise visit. A beautiful girl! A Friday night. A wee hour. A quiet hello. A long hug. A tight sweater. A black leather boot. A lace up the seam. A seat on the couch. A record by Miles. A joke. A laugh. A glass of red. A joint. A pass. A puff. A laugh. A listen. A sharing. A Scrabble game. A war on a word. A begging to differ. A laugh. A sweet nothing. A tight shoulder. A slow massage. A Marvin song. A spellbinding bassline. A spontaneous dance. A Polaroid camera. A posed smile. A silly frown. A tackle. A tickle. A laugh. A stolen kiss. A Prince song. A nasty bassline. A close dance. A slow dance. A lot of friction. A nasty flattery. A mischievous hand. A bare thigh. A slap of the hand. A recent memory. A Friday afternoon. A boyfriend. A raised tone. A thoughtless word. A diss on a Moms! A heavy tear. A No-I-didn’t-mean-it. A big fight. A gargantuan fight. A storming out. A long walk.

    

A Prince song. A room dark. A slow dance. A lust affliction. A stolen kiss. A dangerous look. A slow kiss. A quarter of wet lips. A feathery touch. A deeper kiss. A chipping of teeth! A hasty retreat. A sorry of two. A real kiss. A kiss tht could kill. A rush of kisses. A torrent of kisses. A monsoon of kisses. A mouth going south. A stop on the neck. A stop on the chest. A graze of a breast. A bungee-ing heart. A tackle. A tickle. A made bed. A messy bed. A lost shirt. A tossed bra. A mingling of lips. A tumble of tongues. A collage of bodies. A mélange of limbs. A dominant gesture. A submissive reply. A boy on his knees. A bitch in her boots. A blindfolding. A boot licking. A long spanking. A nipple ringing. A bearable pain. A growing pain. A burning! A burning! A screaming of mercy! A catching of breath. A boy on all fours. A bitch in her boots. A brown eye. A lube job. A finger. A trio. A hand. A fist. A thrust. A fist! A thrust! A squeal like a bitch!

    

A pause. A talk. A laugh. A mingling of lips. A tumble of tongues. A collage of bodies. A mélange of limbs. A cyclone of passion. A mouth going south. A breast. A belly. A bush. A box. A dive. A curious tongue. A located clit. A vacuuming mouth. A pant. A pant. A louder pant. A tongue. A tongue. A faster tongue. A scream. A scream. A falsetto scream!

    

A catching of breath. A catching of breath. A shared cigarette. A slow drag.

A happy two.

    

A sound on the steps. A sound on the steps! A sound at the door. A key in the lock. A whine of a hinge. A snatch of a robe. A rush to the door. A roommate’s return. A slick Casanova. A smile that’s wry. A strut in the room. A short hello. A loss of a shirt. A zipper undone. A giant shlong! A mountainous dong! A losing of breath. A girl on the floor. A soaking punany. A schlong in her crotch. A boy in a chair. A thunderclap thrust. A masculine groan. A falsetto scream! A crash of a crotch. A masculine groan. A falsetto scream! A double explosion! A catching of breath. A catching of breath. A boy in a chair. A walk cross the room. A hand on a chest. A kiss of the boys. A mingling of lips. A tumble of tongues. A head on a schlong. A tender embrace. A hug of a three. A thought of a thing. A throb of a three. A girl on her back: A shlong in her snatch: A dick in his ass. A movement of frames. A body aligned. A groove of three. A falsetto scream. A masculine groan. An unending ooohh! A groove of three. A falsetto scream. A masculine groan. An unending ooohh! A groove. A groove. A very hard groove. A chain of explosions. A fall on the bed. A catching of breath. A catching of breath. A shared cigarette.

    

A rest.

    

A piss.

    

A breeze.

    

A joint. A puff. A pass.

    

A ring. A ring. A very close friend. A very wee hour. A rare situation. A short discussion. A dash down the street. A spring up the stairs. A knock at the door. A striking couple. A coquettish Lolita. A sly Lothario. A quick introduction. A peeling of clothes. A dive in of five, a symphonic congress, a blizzard of thrusts, a tsunami of sex: a kiss, a lick, a jerk, a smack, a hickey, a grab, a grope, a shlong, a nipple, a foot, a cock, a cunt, a clit, a tit, a tush, a toe, a tongue, a twat, a rimming, a reaming, a frightening velocity: a Caligula scene: a falsetto scream!, a masculine grunt, an unending ooohh!, a chirp of a finch, a suck-in of breath, a falsetto scream!, a masculine grunt, an unending ooohh!, a chirp of a finch, a suck-in of breath. A Goddamn G’Lord! A fucking fantasia. A bliss. A bliss. A frenzied bliss. A jism. A jism. A fountain of jism. A climax. A climax. A climax that’s final.

    

A catching of breath.

    

A shared cigarette.

    

A slow rising sun.

    

A pretzeling in bed.

    

A catching of breath.

    

A catching of breath.
