fueled by your scent
won’t leave me alone.
A velvet curtain lifts—
a shared dream unfolds.
I move toward you,
tripping a wire—sparks fly,
train whistles blare.
It’s a chance for a peek
into weightless ecstasy—
succulent chilled pears
slither down our throats.
We smile at the sublime
purr of a Cheshire cat.
It keeps nude bodies warm.
We tap dance to the rhythm
of a razamataz player piano.
With no fear of flying,
we soar beyond the stars.
Euphoria’s here to stay.
Never to say goodbye,
we legerdemain our way away
from the ravenous maw of death.
