Pure Slush

flash ... without the wank

Just had a tango lesson I can't afford

I’m paying this woman

So I can dance with her

Well, no

She’s a great teacher

But going to a club

And asking a stranger to dance

Isn’t the same

They don’t have the same

Mane

Of dark

Unevenly

Cut hair

Falling

Down their back

Scarred

With

Tattoos

Which curves

Dangerously

And fits

Perfectly

Into my hand

They don’t smile at me

With such

Large

Light

Green

Irises

Or know what I will do

Before I do

So close to me

I can smell

The

Fragrant

Chemicals

Of her

Shampoo

So tight

My shirt still smells of her

Perfume

Used to the climate of Argentina

Her heater

Is always

Blazing

Her skin

Is moist

My mouth

Is dry

And I stop…

The class

For a glass

Of water

I drink…

And breathe…

And focus on actually learning something

She scolds me for not concentrating

And why aren’t I wearing the right shoes?

I didn’t bring them

My trainers will have to do

It’s near impossible

To do ochos in trainers

 

 

Guapo! She calls me

Lead me with your chest

Like

This

She takes my

Hands

And puts them on her

Naked

Chest

Why can’t she wear more clothes?

The irony is

I’m learning to dance

To be less of a walking erection

I shiver

And wonder

If she notices

Be present! she snaps

And presses

My hands

Against her

My

Body

Temperature

Rises

I try and shift them upwards

Towards her neck

She pulls them even lower

To where

I feel

The softness

Which is only

A woman’s

Breast…

She…

Leads me…

And I…

Fall…

Into…

Her…

Steps

I realise my eyes are closed

And

I have no idea what to do

When it’s my turn to lead

The jolly music doesn’t suit her

Deep

Slow

Moves

I listen to her breath

As her chest

Contracts

Under my

Hot

Palms

Is this just a way

To make me come back for more lessons?

I already sold my tango shoes on ebay

Just to be with her

And I stumble on friction

In my only pair of trainers

Wondering what else I can sell
