lingering long

the jukebox glowed pale green light
a prayer in 4/4-time
pounding against their chests
a backdrop of foamy beer and peanut shells
bodies touch unexpectedly
and without care
sweaty and flushed
thoughts lost in moving flesh
hips brush together
as lips meet
quick and subtle
fingers knotted in loose strands of hair
nothing lasts but the heat
and a passionate sway
that lingers in steps
long after the night
