All The Way 1973 - Poem by Terry Collett

We'd done the Eiffel Tower
and the art galleries(again)
and went to a few museums

Sonya said
what about going back
to our hotel for a while
to relax and then maybe
have a meal out
at some restaurant
and ease out the night?

I stared at her
in the small cafe
where we'd stopped
for coffee and smoke
what do we do once
we get back to the hotel?
I said

she sipped her coffee
she was gazing at me
she said

on what?

how you behave
she said

a waitress went by
in a short black skirt
with legs eye worthy
I tried not to gaze too long

how you behave
she repeated
watching my eyes follow
the waitress
otherwise we'll just read
and lay on our bed
you with your Dostoevsky
and me with my romance book
she said

I let the waitress's legs
and backside go
you have my full attention
I said

good wouldn't want to
deprive you of your art studies
of waitresses
and their backsides
and legs
she said

all gone just you and me
I said

she nodded her head
and we drank and smoked
and went back
to the hotel
(some cheap joint)

and she said
I'm going to shower
you want to join me?

is it big enough
for us both?
I said

best way to find out
is to try
she said

so we did and it was
and I never realized
what you could do
in a small shower
and they say you can learn
something new every day
and I did
and we went all the way.
