Star gazing



Her tit was an upturned face, pondering, questioning almost,
when she undid her bra, with puckered lips

Really push it in there, make me feel it,
She said, now.
This is not a retractable telescope, madam,
I said, that can be made larger on command.

Come to think of it, in many ways it was
Just forgotten equipment tucked away at the back of a cupboard
and brought out on starry nights.
