as curious
as a kitten
we laugh at life’s
silliness his face
is as genuine as
a diamond its facets
shimmer in dim
light causing me to
his body long and lithe
mounds of muscle flesh
arms like weapons
his gentleness surprises
me his crooked smile
draws me nearer
like sirens
his flank is where
my hand sits holding
onto rythym
nails draw down
his back scratching
like bear claws causing
streaks of red ink
pouty lower lip
beckons kisses
