Para mi mujere pequeño
(por rosey)

Tijerina.jpg

           ‘round’ her small hips

                                i imagine

a string of brass coins      

    she sways 

        Latina style

            prensar

       sostenar                      

    dancing

closer

pressing against

my thigh

 

(

imagine

her

kneeling

rimming

the swell of my clitoris)

 

             a young woman knows
the delight   of   a mango   a pear    

her breath increases my pleasure

yet, i am surprised 

in the moment

of her kiss

 

i hesitate . . .

she laughs     she barely looks back 

she doesn’t understand overcoming power or authority

her purest desires she strings

                    ‘round my belly

                       brass coins

           & red flowers                                                                                  

                 for

                     my   

                     falling

                         hair
