MAGPIE...Prompt #181


                                                      Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec


THANK YOU Tess, for Magpie Tales...


GLIDE

It will never halt,
this loop of jazz
sheathing my pulse,
my sweat stuck
to your cheek,
a briny recipe
for a singular hunger.

I pull away, glide,
a trickle
bounces off my breast,
enticing a glance
from your smoky eye.

Like a butterfly
just coming loose,
I alight on your rhythm.

Out of the blue
you're across the room,
then back beside me
in a stride.

Who is she?

Brian Miller said...

like that butterfly stanza, there is def a lot of sweating when you really get into that dance...ha...but surely three is a crowd...and she needs to understand that...ha.
