I’m a little bit Blanche Devereaux after all.

Someone asks me for help
finding synonyms for a hook-up or booty call.
I am paid to think of things like this.
We start making a list.
A sleepover,
rendezvous,
one night stand,
casual sex,
encounter,
tryst.
We describe the affair:
torrid,
illicit,
tawdry.

And suddenly,
I realize I’m eyeing my phone,
thinking of how likely I’d be
to say yes
if he asked.
