I want to be the tongue to

shape sweet sounds you waste

away for never making


trace teeth and tease yours

against the strength of its own need


swirl living circles on your breasts

to raise you for my lips


dance torch-like on your thighs and

leave you molten


I want to be the tongue to

teach you languages you thought

had been abandoned
