In a hidden corner of a mall
they embrace.
mutely mutual
between protective partitions.

freeing fettering clinging clothing

taking turns on
porcelain pedestal
silently shucking
danger in discovery

Sounds of entering, exiting.
Relief in releasing.
(but no deep kissing).
Simultaneously believing
they were saving themselves
for the perfect guy.
