pink as coral

pink as uncensored lips

meeting curve of skin and tissue

to give deep pleasure ancient gods

knew as thunder’s blessing

Fox loves her mate full well

and shapes a portrait of him now

in prayers’ full worship knowing sex

is what this coldly darkening world

needs to keep surviving

kiss of lust

taste of ocean

reach of salt

to tongue’s swift

hot demand

Fox embraces

fragile beauty


as blood’s


tongue to foreskin

throat to shaft

her pudenda pulsing now

with wide and sweetly aching

need to thrust
