It says here,

All I need

Is some fingernail clippings

And a

Full moon.


And candle light

The only thing

That stands

Between me

And those short shorts,


Thighs of steel

Are making me  

Wanna kneel

Shake it

Like a snow globe,


Across from you

I have a secret

I have a little secret

Crossing and uncrossing,

You have no idea

I have a secret, you don’t know

Are you paying attention?

He knows

Hasn’t stopped staring…

Isn’t listening to one word

His wife is saying,

She never read

All you need

Is some fingernail clippings

And a full moon—

To stop your husband

From watching


Crossing and uncrossing

Their legs.
