Eyes meet eyes and drop…then collide again

She sees him watching her from sly corners

He knows she sees but etiquette maintains

Intentions burn in merging…they’re goners.

Playing fools is the game of subtle tangos

Dancing in glances and slight romances

Taking small bites in those plump cold mangos

Heat and hot days boost flirtatious stances.

Motives beneath eyelids rage above norms

Yet pleasant demeanors displayed for all

Words spoken, loaded with agenda’s forms

Eyes…smiles…small-talk; just the day’s mating call.

They walk off into the night’s burning stove

…Hypocrisy dies when bodies unclothe.
