My Beautiful

lays next
to me
his torso
wrapped
in sheets
like ribbon
he stands
next to me
adjusting his
shirt and trousers
like a nervous
teenager

quit fidgeting I say

which causes him
to laugh leaning
in to kiss me
his lips soft as down
cover mine
tongues begin to
dance as I moan
and fall to bed
looming above me
like an egret in a shallow
pond he targets
my mouth with his
beak

Dario

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
squint
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
