adult theatre.

By Tauwan Patterson

Copyright ©2023

lust, smoke, and darkness 

sex pouring thru from every screen

hetero – 

homo – 

solo – 


obnoxiously serene this here 

luscious carnality pulling 

down pants, releasing hands

lifting shirts high above heads

boys will be boys, remember

a witness standing in the wings
