I’m sending you a bright red candy
lipstick invitation--
come melt with me on this sugar sea
and I won’t ask you
to choose a useful destination
or think beyond
each deep sensation
as we ride the rock and roll of it
the flash and tease and pull of it
where I don’t need
your dedication
or any fervid declarations
no signatures no pledges
no regrets
just lips and tongues and fingertips
tracing lines of sweet and salty
pleasures on our skin
