A Carnivore Kiss - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

Lips treading in touch, unequivocally smitten
Divulging and evolving, unfolding in layers
Inch by inch, spasm by spasm, graft by graft
Till awe and sentience merged in reciprocation
In liquorish tides of moist vermillion
Lunge and recoil, flow and ebb, escalating grip
Animate desires lingering in smoldering sensation
To sediment yearning in a carnivore kiss
