Text message 

Good day, sir,
my name, for this text,
is Hallie.

You must
forgive me
for being so forward.

If I were drunk,
on yesterday’s wine,
I might understand my words.

I am drunk, instead,
on your fevered words
as I have never been before.

Your poetry tickles
my inner soul
as if it were a lover’s


I take it in
and I cherish
the feel of it inside me.

It fulfills me
in an inspiring
aphrodisiac way.

I thank you
for what you have done,
but I love my husband.

Do not text me back!
