Treasure Island

Doggy-style Behind the Octopus


I went to play mini golf with this guy I met.
I chose the Coral Sea course.
I thought the dark and the black lights might be romantic.
After a few holes, it seemed to be working.
We were laughing and exchanging ‘hard’ looks.
By the ninth hole we were already to those “let me show you how to swing” excuses to
get close.
As he snuggled up behind me, putting his hands on my club, I saw another couple.
They were over by the hole with the giant octopus.
And they were all over each other.
They weren’t even golfing.
I pointed them out to my date and we made fun of them, saying how gross their public display was.
We went back to golfing, but I secretly continued to watch them.
Even though it made me uncomfortable, I couldn’t stop staring at them.
I’d almost torn my attention back to golfing with my date until I saw them sneak behind the octopus.
It was shadowy where they were and I wouldn’t have noticed them if I hadn’t already been watching.
I watched shamefully with wide eyes as they pulled their pants down just enough to do it doggy-style behind the octopus.
I watched until they were done.
It wasn’t that long.
Just “a quicky” I guess.
I finally turned away and looked at my date.
He was still finding childish excuses to touch my hand or my waist.
I smiled playfully back at him, but inside I felt like a loser.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
