desire, trepidation, and hunger …




sprinkling cinnamon caresses, scribbling odes,

etching my words on your bare back,

desire inflames, engulfs flesh and blood and bone,


dispelling all trepidation,

the sin of hungering,

in a sweltering furnace of longing,


scribbling odes,

fingers meandering across your body,


desire, trepidation, and hunger,


fleeting, momentary,


yet abiding, infused,

relentless,



welcome.
