A Husband's Request


Let my tongue tell you things in touch
That it could never say in words
Let it tickle your every curve and
Delve into your deepest reaches
With kisses – passionate kisses
Let my lips sheath your accessories
You ears, your fingers, your toes
Your breast- your nipples, let me be
Their stand as you fall before me
Like satin dresses fall from your skin
Stopping only to relish your curves,
Then stop, stop and sing me a song
As written by love from day one;
With digging hands sculpt me,
Sculpt me my yesterday, while
I hold on for tomorrow and in this
Maybe we’ll find today over the ridge
Where rainbow pleasures descend
Then rise, rise as east incense does
And stupefy me with a kiss
As you recoil like a fountain –
Always full- upon me in dance,
And sing your song while I sing mine
As our rhythms summate until
We both explode in cheer, and
Breathe; breathe some of me
Back into self that I may recall
My name, and rest, rest upon my
Press that my hand might stroke
Your hair in a rhythm like that of
Our dance, and rest, rest as I hold
You and whisper in your ear
Words that exalt and humble
In the same - “I love you! ”
As the universe expands
Its fabric of time and space
I love you so… my wife,
Mi mujer… ma femme…
Je vous aime… te quiero!

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
