VODKA

As my semi-nude body
felt your hand
I suddenly woke up
I could have raped you
And left you there
Like any boys would do.

Your breath smells vodka
But I kissed it anyway.
I don’t know why
But you whispered my name
In your sleep
And that scares me.

This morning you ask me
How I slept last night.
“It was good, it was good.”
But I lied.
Like a bat, I was awake
I survived the cold night.
