keeping score

i am relieved
that you are not one
to keep score
carrying a small steno notebook
in your back pocket
tallying
our orgasms
my five
to every one of yours
and that heavy handed
diagonal slash
might as well
have counted for two
you remember the one
that came in waves
coursing through my body
as your tongue
lifted my floodgates
like a crumbling dam
leaving me with
the realization
that i will spend
the rest of my days
working off this debt
