EMOTICON by Andrew Printer
Once inside his apartment, once inside any stranger’s home, these things happen fast. There’s no time to pause or be quick on my feet with clever excuses. Men who misrepresent themselves rarely linger. On the contrary, they hurry me in and then quickly out of my clothes, leaving me no time to un-promise anything. Today was no exception. Before I had time to say a word he had lifted my shirt up over my head and both his and my summer-colored shorts had dropped to the floor.
