Hold Hands

Fingers laced
grasp of trust—

Hug, aka Embrace

Encircle enwrap arms firmly
press bodies firmly—
nuzzle clavicles

Re: Cunnilingus #2

In languor linger there on her
as if there were no other world
no tomorrow

Smack that Pretty Ass

Give that percussive thwack—
get that hand print in pink—

Collect Reward

Having given the receiving—
good head to your godhead

Coitus/Intercourse/F*cking, Etc.

So many ways to say it on this Earth
so many ways to do it in our Universe

Ask her how she first desires the penetration of bodies
the interpenetration of minds unfathomable

O as in Orgasm

When it all comes down
what it comes down to—
Holy f*ck
