open to receiving any
beating you’ll
offer

my fraught
heart..

starved body,

scouring blots
of past
with

steel wool
mittens,

friction sparks,
i’m warming

to the feel of real
against my
skin,

squirming toes
of rosy
kid,

we’re so close..
to cheating
death,

wings part as shivers
slither up the
spines

of dizzy lovers-
chest to
chest

blind to
time.

Virgin Touch

cocky as curious,
an endearing
awkward,

confiding..
gates parting,

idealistic as broken,
insecure but mostly sincere
subconscious woken,
rawness, edges
in all desires
unspoken,

still naive to the
complexities of each
others’ ripe
needs,

righteously
reciprocal,

tragic and self-
critical,

impelled by
impulse

to rush into fever’s
garden, in full
blush.

lost in musky flush
midst shivers
of touch.

..the raging candle in lust’s clutch.

Touch of Trust

your softest hand
commands my
next breath,

and with a
silvery touch,

in the light
of love’s
day,

you clear all grey
shit that filled
our gravel
days,

you’re the chrome
glint through
rust.

you’re a pale moon’s
reply to long
lost days.

..and you i trust.

Slow and Low

crowds of words force
their fury through
the picket
signs,

in beeline to the front,
a stink for
show,

then out the mouth
they fly..

off to point and jeer
at another street
stabbing,

or to seek out and cheer on
weeds in growth,
in need?

who knows..

but i do love the sting
of breeze you
tease

when you whisper
my name..

low and
slow.
