  1. Her white thighs
    stuck to the black upholstery
    that had been baking
    under Florida’s sun,
    and she scrunched up her nose
    at the sudden shock of it.

    The car was hot
    but she was hotter,
    and he couldn’t take
    his eyes away.

  2. When I walked in, I knew by the lighting in the room she had a gun. I knew by the way her suit blended with the upholstery that I was about to be had. My eyes were on her legs, sheep to the slaughter, no strength to resist. There were two drinks already poured on the coffee table. As I sank into the tweed sofa, I waited for what was to happen next.
