sensuality

X Libris

allow my fingers
to run
along your spine
and open you
for the first time
and kiss
your preface
gentle with my
eager glances,
and let me
slowly soak up
every word
and phrase,
all passages
discovered
in each chapter
newly encountered,
then forbid
my hands
to lay you
down again
until
your denouement
is revealed
on the final page.
