love by proxy

They made love in silence
each a proxy for the other’s
real true desire.

He shut off the lights
so that they couldn’t really
see each other.

She dutifully turned her head
away and he buried his face
in her neck.

In the warm haven of her nape,
he clinched his eyes shut to
remember someone else.

And she closed her eyes too,
so she could dream of
some other place.
