Most private moments of night
growing body of love

A dropped odor
scents out the hints of a kiss

Breath carries its wind in pocket
A careless whisper rolls down
from ear lobe to neck well

Skin, prepared to all states of inspiration…

Ex lovers are tangent to
crossing two circles:
matter and color of the skin

That’s why making love is so crowded…

Man, a snake
swallowing its tail end

All is accepted about man
what to have
or not

Night has come to such a place…
