get off my toes

i'd love to tie you
to the bed, you know.
give me that shell-shocked
stare, deer-in-the-headlights,
looks like venison tonight!
i've faltered, heading for
the guardrail.
that shit's not funny, and 
you don't have to be standing
right up on me that way.
let's talk about it 
a while first,
but get off of my toes.
and hey, you want 
to come to dinner?
