She takes a risk

We sit on her folded futon
so she can read me lyrics
she wrote before she was married
prophesy from a pre-initiated priestess
then we gaze into each other's reflection
when my lips start to tingle I say...
something about how hard it is
for women to initiate...
"...But" she says, “the anticipation is kind of nice.”
“So you prefer to hang out in the anticipation?”
“No,” she says urgently and lunges forward
for our first kiss.
