New Year’s eve he shows up at my door in black Prada, I’m in velvet. We’re dancing with his thigh between my legs. He lifts his shirt, revealing pierced nipples. He kisses me and a tongue stud knocks against my teeth. The rest of the night we’re dancing, kissing and laughing, drinking champagne at the bar. “Hello—” he says, giving me a lap dance, sliding his hand up my leg. He reaches into his pocket and takes out a lipstick. “I bought this today. Can you put it on me?”
“Hmm…Cinnabar.” I slide the lipstick over his mouth—“Impish leather boy,” I say, outlining one leaping cheekbone with the tip of my finger, “Crow morphed into man, creature of bark…You’re attracted to women who wear your dress size.”
That grin again.

Undergrad Laundry

by M. A. Istvan Jr.

 
 
Women with underwear around ankles in restroom stalls
 
 
Down in my dorm’s laundry room,
an industrial basement of a place,
I see a black coed in pajama sweats,
tee-shirt holey. From lip to nose
her skin is darker than the rest, eggplant
almost. I imagine that to be the color
of her pussy. She closes her washer
and I say hello, blood coursing.
