Sufficient For Tonight

Unfamiliarity breeds excitement
spawns daring
first date
in 17 months
she's not dream girl,
and he'll do for now.
Blaring music
a safety net for unsteady words
she slides in close
he counts hatching eggs
She leans in
laughs at everything
it's been 10 years
she makes him feel like Don Juan
flips her hair
feet collide
hands fumble
his mind races
her heart plots
when?
when?
when?
A dam bursts at the base of his brain
he takes her hand
exiting the club
onward to a victory
that will be sufficient for tonight.
