Loving Men-Rodrigo (Shoulders)

shouldersThey span a broad
torso like a trifecta
of mountains: Left,
Center, and Right

The Center Peak
is covered in thick
waves of brown
that swirls like the thick
vapors of Jupiter

The left and right
peaks
are twins from afar,
but up close they
are as different
as the eyes or ears or
hands or feet

The oasis of clavicles
adorn the base of
Center. Waterfalls
cascade from the rivers
mouth and through fleshy
arms

The Three Peaks
of the shoulders
stand proud like
the fleshy florets
of broccoli

Loving Men-Rodrigo (Aromas)

sweaterHe wore
a sweater of mine
which holds
his aroma of yesterday.
Warmer today it
harbors his day.
Inhaling the cashmere
I sense chili and cigarettes and
sweat.

He held
a pillow of mine
which holds
his aroma of last night.
Cooler this morning
it mirrors his night.
Inhaling the cotton|
I sense dreams and sweat and
passion.

He covered
himself with me
which holds
our aromas of tomorrow.
Hotter today
it promises our future.
Feeling each other
I know tomorrow and tomorrow and
today.
