The lady came on
at the 14th floor

Those of us already there
restarted our maneuverings—
puzzle pieces, so we seemed,
intent upon position

strategizing as we might
the best accommodation,
leaving lovers tightly pressed,
spacing for the others

She and I were pleased to find
the corner most confining,
flirtation there the harbinger
of more than just a kiss

leading to acquaintance
as would have us miss our floors,
neither of us minding
