Hot Guac


I remember a night 

we picked up party food.

Prepping in your friend’s kitchen,

we were bantering, and suddenly 

you told me to kiss you. 

I thought you were kidding because 

I believed all the times you 

told me you weren’t ready. 

Weren’t serious. Didn’t feel. 

And our hands were full

of chips, limes, salsa ingredients.

So what I gave was the briefest.

But what I really wanted 

was drop the avocados

press you up against the fridge

and kiss you so fervently

you'd need to change your jockstrap 

every time you think about guacamole.
