Full measures

Two
shots of tequila
and I can feel her
eyes on me,

it might be wishful thinking
associated with
spirits and drinking
but every time?

No,
there’s more to it than
I can see,
devilry
spirituality,
carnal thoughts or
just
plain old depravity.

I peer ’round the door
just in case
she
got there before me
and
her eyes already
bore through me
two shots
hot looks,
guess a book’s out of
the question
tonight.
