Move In Slowly

by HemmingPlay

Danaid by August Rodin

Move in slowly with carnivorous intent,

Pin me

With warm curves, sweet desire.

Enclose me with tender, liquid fire.

Then I shall coax from you

Grateful prayers

To the wisdom of the loving gods.



*Note: Slightly revised, this is a repost of a piece from a month ago that Spillwords published this morning.
