Ignition

You sat inside me
rolled up 
like a blunt 

waiting to be lit
fire is after all a type of ignition

I have a match in my pocket
let's go

  8. Hm. The waiting must be the conflict. If this is a conservative type, she'll wait for the right switch!

    I am a huge fan of minimalism. Great piece.
