Like attentions fixed upon Winter, Floating to the ground. Creeping madness imagining snows melt, Cooling the brow. Found floating in the sharing of thought, Finding like rest in burial sought. Cupping handfuls, Bathing in the abstraction for hours. The nuanced intentions, Sesame the arms of flowers. Toe touching head, A still of curved form. Flipping […]

Fast flicking fingers catch the attention with gaudy flirtation, leaving the streets littered with cards.  “Boom.” The canon and bass bounced from the deck of the ship carrying the muffled voices of the show siren through the crowd.  Light from the Luxor’s capstone shown straight into the nighttime sky.   Luminescent bulbs flood the streets […]

“The Before” is just as good as “the After.” But “the Before” is all for “the After.” And “the Before” doesn’t exist if I can’t have “the After.” Following after her lines, tracing my fingertips across her shoulders, my hands move down her back before her thighs. And the kissing of her neck, then shoulders, and […]

A beautiful, blue sky day. A few clouds smiled, Nodding as they floated away. The waves fell onto the shore. Glissing notes in harmony, Hooked on the feeling, wanting more. She looked up at me and said… Be my lazy Sunday afternoon. Cool your troubled mind, Surrender willingly. Everything’s here you’ll find, Hold me closely. […]

Tasting it on the air. Smelling it on the wind. I see it in her eyes. Escaping from her skin. Filling me up. Red rising level. Her neckline flush. Her hair disheveled. Her hand glides. The bloodlust overtaking me. I close my eyes. The scent saturating the olfactory. Holding me in position. I hear the […]

Hips swaying back and forth, Methodically and seductively, One foot replacing the other. Slide and twist. Humming soulful renditions, Depicting a rendezvous. No words,  “Shhhh.” No movement,  a felt embrace. This is where I meet her, When I close my eyes. Jonesin’ for a rendezvous. Sharing a sunset over the beach. A place outside of the […]

With the closing of the door, the co-mingling aromas of relaxed atmosphere and poetic recitation are resealed.  “No smoking” signs and exotic juices occupy glasses of geometric delight.  The angles of the room collect the soft aromas of votive candles as they climb toward the ceiling; a collection of requests for the presence of the […]

An inland lagoon of deep purple. Greeted on all but one side by the soft earth of cavern floors. Currents solemnly migrating under the silver gaze of the moon. Serenity produces a song of silence, with the occasional improvisation of the waters outside. Candles religiously congregate within the cavern. Their lights flicker with a dedicated […]

Shadows fell across the evening hours. Unpacked boxes lay around the room. Dancing to the music, They held each other close, Slowly spinning around the floor, Their eyes searching for one another. He said to her, “Lemme be your long distance, love interest.” What can never be, But nonetheless almost was, That tingling feeling in […]

Lightning raced across the border of the nighttime sky.  The rain poured heavily outside her window.  She sat on the bed with knees bent; arms emoting submission.  Her garment slid from her shoulder. Slowly, she lifted her gaze to look at him. He stood, blocking the only exit from the room, standing just outside the […]
