To Touch You - Poem by Francisco Arcellana

TO touch you
to kiss you
to press against you
anywhere

to break open your lips
to drink deep from your mouth
to feed long on your tongue

to root between your breasts
to brace against your body
to thrust between your thighs
powerfully

long
to die deep
and then to sleep
my right hand resting lightly on your left hip
