It always starts with ‘Hi’


It always starts with hi

Innocuously friendly,

Social niceties minimalised

Then discarded as tersely

And succinctly possible.

What you are doing, and

Whether you are “good”

I couldn’t care


Will you be

My illusion?

I don’t need you

For long.

Twenty minutes

Should do, to reach that

Sigh, when my

Body relaxes.

After all

A warm body

Is better than a

Flat screen

But I need to know,

No offence

Your size, statistics

Position and pics

It is the 21st  century

Eroticism scorched

To stats, and buyers

Seeing before they buy.

So hi,

Send me your pics

And I’ll see, if you will be

My illusion tonight

And if you aren’t

Don’t stress

Your pics may warm

My hand

As I search

Flat screens

For the intimacy

Of me
