33. Riverhouse Girl

I go back to Riverhouse.
The nightclub.
With flashing lights.
Boom boom boom of the bass.
The pretty girls.
I drink beers.
A young woman approaches.
She’s drunk.
I’m drunk.
We dance.
Her hands are all over me.
She kisses me.
I respond.
I’m turned on.
She invites me back to her room.
My guard’s down.
10 years without a girl’s hands on my body.
15 years, even.
So, so long.
I know, for Jesus, I must resist.
But the alcohol has weakened my defence…

I go.
