The Lift

The wonderful thing
About being with
You in this hotel
Lift in London full
Of people is that none
Of them knows what you
And I are about to do
In bed or possibly
On the floor in fact not
Even you realize yet
How much you’re going
To enjoy this act for
Which we have no name
Not clinical or hideous, just
A double digit number, perfect
As a skater’s figure eight
