Lip greedy.
Steeling kisses.

A thousand slaps
in the face.

Consequence batter.
No wound to salt.

Walk away simple.
Never pursued.

Not once.
Until today.

Police encounter.
Disbelief stunned.

Not an electric gun.
Accountability shock.

No tantrum.
No guttural curses.

Official processing.

Lighter wallet.

Colonel bucket stop.
Not home on time.

Football game.
Monday night.
