Poetry: “Stroke”

Slow-build
Sensation
Snug-walled
Straitjackets
Pleasure buttons
Pressed
On elevator panels
Floors 1-13
Make frequent stops
At floor levels
Anonymous
Hold the door closed
Take advantage
Of baited breath
(No paparazzi)

Give that dude a hammer!
Padre, drive the nails in…
I’ll stroke it to the beat.
