Heartwink




we long to know each other's animal
in an entirely different way

than we want to meet the human in them

cramping and twitching
reacting to involuntary arousal

vehemently brazen

our intimate boundaries
patrolled by bribable sentries

with the sincerity of a heartwink

a seduction only works once
or needs to

genuine innuendo enticing with frantic antics

the beloved elevated
by the relentlessness of desire

skin dusted with spice

the beloved elected
tyrant with an embrace of helplessness

the inexact temptations of survival
