The Edging Climax

As I was changing out the compact disc in my car last Thursday:

The Buzzcocks “Orgasm Addict” had just about :03 seconds left on the timer; not yet finished.

I wanted to freshen up the cacophony of sounds in my car and in an attempt to do so I grabbed the CD case in the seat behind me; almost there.

A woman I’ve got emotionally strung around my fingertips sits next to me; never fucked.

The chicken nuggets on the passenger seat floor; never eaten.

All of this happened just before I hit the car in front of me; finished.

I could live in this moment forever; the pre-crash.

Exist in the pre-climax; forever.

So why don’t I?

Coming is hard,

But I really wanna crash.
