By Tares Banigoe Oburumu

Thursday, July 13, 2017.

..naked under the showers,

the bathroom door is open

to the future,

bunch of urges in my hands,

I am writing the poem on my body,

she's the poetry of the present,

the small silver balls run down her

crystal skin colour of the morning sun,

each like fingers caresses her oval breasts

overlooking the delta beneath the navel

a well-trimmed lawn glistering black

between two fruity thighs coffee-brown,

and a tummy flat as a plain on which grows

tiny curly roses,

nipples standing at attention listening to the call of my heartbeat wired to the milk-sucking lips,

her spine and backside shaped like the crescent, two

hills merged, curve to meet the smooth C-bends before the ankles,

the waterdrops breathe on every part, on every sensational hair and spirit,

she towels and reveals the desire I have been

drawing on my body the future,

she lies on my waiting trigger and melts into my essence as artist and lover,

I shoot, and she cums many times before she died inside me…
