Take That

Playing off your intent, 
writhing as you plunder 
within the dank dampness,
the wanton wave
spray painting effigies like Pollack
pole axed in delight my pelvis rises…

With hands full of Adonis’s moons
parting the skin of your throat with pearly teeth,
clawing back, ripping wide the broad side
the effigy of a biblical God.

Breath warms the conical rises
fingers wind in the curls at the nape of neck,
the hollow of your throat,  a salt lick
capping the wave brings froth 
to the fecund cave of desire.

    Forgot to tell you...it's a done deal Deb!...Hope it's the one you like...it makes a rather vague reference to life/death etc. so that's the one I picked

    Erotica can be such a grey area, between strangers...I usually let Chris read whatever poems I have written for him or with him in mind, before I post them anywhere...common courtesy and all. Good poetry otherwise, Deborah. I can't help but wonder what exactly you are trying to do?

    Whew!!...HOT! I'm envying Chris! Good stuff cher!...Brain lock on your Trinity contest so I entered an oldie...is that a no-no?...Ouch! You didn't have to HIT me did you?...I'm wounded, don't you pity me? Now I'm gonna need one of your therapy sessions...
