Ornament
by About A.J. Huffman

The table was glass, and curved
to fit the angle of our bodies.
Yours over mine.  Twisting
between the smooth coolness
beneath me and the warm
roughness of your chest
above me, I am folded into
the perfected pose of your latest
fantasy:  Arms constrained,
legs splayed and angled
for maximum penetration
(with minimal aggression –
your choice of pedestal is far
too fragile).  You tie my hair
in silver.  Cover my eyes in rose
(silk -- for sensualization, of course).
You declare me:  flawless.   And suspend
yourself just above me.  Your eyes
devour me.  In time to my breathing.
Your initial stroke is sudden.  Shattering.
I am dangling.  Blind
in and to the total submergence
of you.  Of me.
And this hallowed sounding
of skin and mind and night.
