Desire

Did you ever kiss the entire surface
of your lover's body?

Did you ever discover with trembling lips
the valley faint in the small of their back?

Did you ever travel south, way south,
then north a bit and stop for supper?

Did you ever touch so gently
causing white doves to appear?

Did you ever taste passion pooled at the tips of fingers
10 red hot peppers proceed with caution.

Did you ever light a thousand candles the scent of jasmine and laurel
And hold on until they melted? An ocean at low tide fills the room.

Did you ever play Sinatra and dance with tongues
exchanging constant the role of lead?

Did you ever rest long on a breast bone mesa
and savor slowly the outcome of desire?
