Nestle your lips on mine
Hold me in your mouth like a promise —
oh baby, canoodle me
till my body holds wildfire!
a hot meal in
your dark room,
& let me find heaven in your sacred place
As I turn your trust to thrusts — harder and deeper
till you sing me a sweet ecomium!
And we shall meet at the watershed
where two rivers form a confluence.
