However,
i can use the rounded corners of
sullen eyes, too-short fingernails,
magnanimous hips, and frosted lips
pressed crackling against the
porcelain dream he
so blackly freed against me.
i am four inches envy and
six inches will,
and completely engrossed in pursuit of
fulfillment.
And he, still violent and violet, is there,
unconvinced and scared, and so perfectly
mine.
He finds me tied, vaudevillian, to his
percussive heartbeat,
falling from mind to mouth,
from mouth to spine.
Where contact confuses
sexually transmitted attention for
sexually transmitted affection,
there is not time to obscure the view that
condemns him to what is malign
and otherwise known as misunderstood.
And i felt his eyes eating up where i stood,
felt my heart burning up what it could,
dropped a flatline to
pick him off my hemline, and understood
what it meant to be in control.
i love the heady derision provoked
simply by the act of undressing, no smoke,
except for that of the opiate crowd and
no mirrors, except for those in which he drowns
the ashes of his idle and fogbound throat.
i am fascination's captive,
hoping for an audience with
half of my vices;
he is determined by tea leaves
in the stem of my crystal,
stemming and distally placed from me.
Yet we are swimming in dissonant distance,
a lifetime and an instant away from morality.
On attraction.

I love the rush of imagery. I didn't get 'vaudevillian', though the rhythm is fantastic.
