136| My Name is Will

Will Stockton


He will fuck you, I think
he will when he fills your will
with his two fingers, admitted there

where I am not. Name
your love
, he says, what
you will
, and presses pause

on this play to piss.
I pull your eyes to mine
as his will relaxes.

Our strokes will synchronize
as piss dribbles through your hair,
down your chest, your thighs,

to the shower floor he will
order you to lick, to will
your tongue between his toes,

and I will come,
our wills fulfilled
in this sequence

of threesomes – me the third,
the number reckoned none.
