Moments after 
when the tears have dried
And I have put aside my emotions
Setting them down in a nice glass jar in the center of the living room coffee table
Not forgetting where they are
when I need to refer back to the 
Old me
If I need to black out for a moment
And apologize profusely for stepping out of my inner self
It doesn’t happen too often
 
Being told
And knowing truly that my fuse line is longer than that one lane highway across the Nevada desert
I know me
 
As I grow older
steady mirroring the personality of my daddy
Patience level swaying in the wind
needing a moment to dip my toe into the pool
 
yeah
I know how deep the damn water is
And so I find myself here
Alone with me
or
the soft 
smooth touch of you
a tall glass of icy pineapple 1800 at my elbow
the sounds of Phyllis in my ear
have often kept me from being the lead topic of CNN
and the 6:00 primetime news
Al Sharpton
explaining that
we all ain't like him
 
I need you
When nothing else can stop the translations of the thoughts I have
At this moment
Into actions I will not remember
and surely regret
It is you
Who soothes me
Assures me that
everything will be alright when the last line is finished
The last word
surrounded by affectionate
Understanding
Periods
Commas
And sometimes
Nothing at all
 
naked

I need you
Baby

I need you
