Big Tent poetry prompt - wordles and phrase Feb.28

“There is also the matter of______”
(a typical Saturday night at the bar)

It is a typical Saturday night at the bar
Girls and boys on parade stumble on in
Tow good moods and bad in their wake
Slip onto the stools and order whiskey or gin

Sitting close they press thigh against thigh
Smile shyly look away then at each other
Fingers slip through fingers and tangle together
Eyes hold the question meant for a lover

Heads bent close hair shorn so boyish
Whispers so low words indistinguishable
Spark a flame ignite breathlessness, a gasp
Defy any and all to end so much pleasurable
