your touch (a glow in the dark)


at the Cafe
a glance, barely
— the machine glowing, the huff of steam, rattle and grind —

my wrist
you don’t pull away

— i taste your lipstick, Colgate Fresh, a cigarette —


Our true selves
far below
flickering chroma
glow in the dark.

From 1989, here’s Sex by The Necks  – (the first of 25 albums and a 30 year collaboration. If you want to hear more about the Necks, try Andrew Ford’s Music Show on the ABC).
