Notes from a Hotel Room, From my knees

IN THE hotel bar there are two married couples sitting together. Just them and me. They are young and one of them has a baby and she is in the pram there, not making a sound. When the men go out for a smoke—rain dried & December warmth—one of the girls, next to the wall, panda eyes, starts telling about how hard someone made her come. I pretend not to listen but I am listening very hard. This man made her come from her knees. She keeps talking about how he made her come from her knees. From her knees. The knees are two of the most important joints in the human body. I would like for cannibals or a team of well-trained doctors to truly appreciate my knees. And her knees. “Really hard.” Where she came from.
