it is the darkness
that is kissing me
no face
no shape
the sweet chocolate night
closing over my eyes
my neck
my breasts
with its warm lips
smooth skinned night thick
as oil rolling down the small
of my back
oil poured tongue
filling my ear
filling my mouth
filling my needs
till they stretch and purr and nuzzle
skin drinking deep sex rooting in
far into the frosty dawn

i want this sweetness
in my nose
and on my tongue
like incense
even after the sun
has burnt these kisses away
even after this thing
that has happened in the dark
with no faces and no names
lies dead in the road
paws up
to people always in a hurry
to get somewhere else
somewhere else
and somewhere else
