Let's not play the game
(Or "Note to the Gentleman Across the Room")
That begs the questions
"Who am I?"
But skirt the issue
In the many folds of my party dress
And fulfill this shivering desire that drove us here
Drove your stare
And made me dare
Submit these thoughts to you on a paper napkin
Soiled only by my lips
As you soon will be
Come to me
I await you hungrily.
