Fstop. (SNAP!)

our moment.

our pier.
in a split second, 
a single-slipped ray
of animation 
senses and egresses
ambient light  
into the 
cauterized bloodstream 
of two enamored

Fstop. (SNAP!)

our reflection.

my desire for you.
my private folding
twice into your extended arms -
thrice thinking through 
the mercurial threads 
of my theatrical,
dramatic effulgence;  
my passion forth -
knowing the eagerness,
of a woman's innocence,
will boomerang
like zirconium crystals 
to caress and invade
parched throats.

for us to swallow and savor.

Fstop. (SNAP!)

our morning.

our daydreams will
shoot the light fantastic
like the omnipresent 
a whispered warmth
leaks within 
my heart - 
it then secretly
spills upon your breasts -
it longingly stings, like 
gilded particles
of dazzled mercury;
silently burning
my candid penance 
into your 
wanton wishes -
akin to smoldering embers.

(my camera clicks)

Fstop.  (SNAP!)

our auroral 

like a clandestine
morning blossom; 
a once 
removed duo - 
now ignite 
Mr. Sunshine's
and longitudes
into a partnership 
of cindered flesh. 
my sunshine -
am i invited 
with camera down to
your expansive arms -
your powdered legs -

Fstop. (SNAP!)

I'm blinded
by your prismed stare.

Smile, sunshine -
beam relucent
as I adjust the 

smothered aperture.
