Long Past Midnight

A blessing on
Our skins
Far from the persistent
Idiocy of the crowd
A blanket beneath
Half in and out
Of clothes
With a lust
Possessed by
Electric angels
The sodden silk
Of your underwear
Tested by my fingers
Bringing to light
The expression of
Pleasure that
Shows your secret beauty
What an afternoon
Lustful, lustrous lassitude
We read to one another
Before desire
Compels us again
The damp heat of
Your mouth
As much robbery
As ceremony
And had we the means
We’d stay here
Long past midnight
