Lace and chainmail
2 hearts up for sale
Summer solstice
heightens the senses
Clipped wings
replenished in a blink
Chinks in the armour
erased by a murmur
Petals abandoned, withered
Ripples on the river
filled with silence
and quickened breaths
the taste of vodka lemonade
and lemon zest
Reality retreating
fast, to a mere speck
Heady brew
the juices of the honeydew
Sweat and sex
total disregard for what comes next
Indulgent Angels,
look on
aware of the occasional
to teeter on the edge,
to fall
off the damn pedestal,
and for a little while
relinquish control
