Thickness of exuded warmth
Still lingers on awakened skin, languorous
Aridity’s moistness, not cracking parched~

Rent masks, carefully cultivated over time
And chiseled to perfection, now breached
Freely let love’s light to stream inwards~

Life thickened dermis’s shiny patinas
By dint of spit and polish had served splendidly
Paled in comparison to natural glow of love~

Crossroads, twists and turns, life’s curved balls served
Superbly fielded by stable head on able shoulders, hangs
Loosely, nine pinned by pure emotion’s lone fell swoop~

Each day now, a wrapped gift, every night
An excited peeling, even as I ironically celebrate
The beginning of my hothouse pampers’ undoing~
