Bullish, he pulls a poem from my hair.
My head slides back, mouth parts,
lips open. Salaciously I breathe air
brisk into my lungs. Throat smarts,
as internal rhyme in couplets drips
my hips. Intimate a sound, I do not dare.
Staring into eyes’ abyss—a dare
in lieu of running fingers through my hair.
Fortune finds less resistance to dripping
words from fullness of lips parted—
amaranthine borders. Sensual smarts
skin, libidinous friction. A rush of air
ignites systems shared. An air
of forbiddance correlates with the dare;
motion, rhythm ends, picks up, smarts.
Tingling nerves, pulsing blood, raised hair.
Fingers tracing, Heaven parts.
In that moment I swear—infinity drips
down spine, across back, a drip
of anesthetic as I float above the air,
a being in the void above but not part
of it. To live there I’d dare
read and write poems lengths my hair,
ripping through its coarse, smarting
head. I long for hands (yours) smarting,
slicking parts I can not see, eyes drip
back into my head. You breathe from hair
poems in immortal language. In the air,
I beg; an agreeable dare
emanates through every unknown part.
From Heaven’s darkness I may not part.
Quickened lashes fall smart.
Delicate flesh, his hands they dare
caress, under beams, dreams adrip
in woman’s aura, lingering on the air.
You run fingers through, through my hair.
I dare, knowing I may never part,
him pulling poems from my hair, and poems, smart,
pool droplets of blood that burst and drip through air.
