Dominatrix [Poem] by Peter Mladinic

She: How am I dressed in the best pic you
have of me?
He: In a black t shirt and jeans with slits in
the knees.

She: What do you like in that pic?
He: Your hair, how the ends are jagged
and uneven.

She: In that pic, do you think I am wearing
a bra under that black t shirt?
He: Yes.

She: What excites you, about me?
He: You are different from other women.

She: How am I different?
He: Your power is amazing.  I think of your
big red brown bush against your milky
white thighs and belly, and think, that’s
the source of your power.  It all flows out
from there.

She: How else am I different?
He: You are bold.  You like risk.  You enjoy
toys and gadgets.  Sex as theater, finding
the extraordinary in the ordinary, and
experimenting.

She: I don’t need you or any man to tell
me what I am, who I am. I know who I am.
He: I understand.

She: It does excite me to have power over
men, to be with a man and see, hear, and
feel him begging me…for love.
