Catch the upbeat
with a shoulder shrug,
more subtle than hips.

Convey as much
with a nod.

Start off deeper and slower
when you thrust, and hold the finish

make it go all the way, tap the hilt
if you get my point, feel the lust
along the long line you’ll hold.

And I’m not kidding!
Absolutely motionless
till the follow-spots fade
plus a beat
