Look again

















You see, I'm more
than just a shape.
Long legs,
musical fingers,
kiss-hollowed
creases.
Perfect presentation
in simple smooth.

Run a hand
along my ledge.
Surplus sighs,
ribald residue,
skin-flake
confetti.
Explicitly yours,
in a love litter.

  2. 'skin-flake confetti' is a trifle gross, but love litter makes up for it! LOL

  3. You and Tess do with words what Jennyfreckles and I have been doing with images : same prompt different views - and both equally good.

  11. If only the mirror could talk! This had quite an erotic feel to it Martin - 'run a hand along my ledge'.......and I admire your use of alliteration, 'surplus sighs' being almost onomatopoeic .
