Kiss me as if the first time.
Unzip the sweater while I tremble and say your name and reach for something earthly to hold onto.
Slide your hands across my ribcage like bathwater.
Smooth my belly like waiting for a train.
Hold my toes in your palm.
Say sweet things
about what I do to you,
about brilliant luck.
Ask me to let go.
Don’t not say I love you.
Hold my hips like a pastry box.
Lay your cock there so I feel its weight.
Tell me I smell good in the corners.
Trace my eyebrow with your finger.
Hum with hunger.
Sigh with knowing.
Enter and tell me how good it is.
Close your eyes and hear the ocean from an ancient place.
Breathe in my ears.
Taste salt on my collarbone.
Lace your fingers with mine and roll like a riff that goes on and on and on until time is undone.
Take me with you to oblivion.
Don’t leave me behind when you go.
