beneath the dappled trees
and tall green hedges
on the old park bench...
sit here,
in front of me,
where I can
worship you properly.
the contours of
the nape
of your ebony neck.
and leisurely;
your perfect throat.
die slowly gasping
in my appreciative arms,
as liquid garnets
gush forth from
your excellent craw.
I will celebrate
in rapt awe,
my hands
in your crimson river!
