Bedroom Psychology
by James Wackett

    She says, "I have this theory
    that all guys
    secretly want to be girls."
    I laugh, but
    she just smiles, stares
    at me, unblinking.
    "Do you like it better
    with a girl?" I ask. She says
    nothing, rolls over on top,
    starts licking my neck. Staring
    at the ceiling, I try to remember
    where I first met her.
