His teeth unzipped me

chilled lips exposing

skeletal remains of lust.

My skin crawled in retreat

but begged for more

fingers interlacing as gears lock

a deep rumbling within these human machines.

His lips wandered

exposing a confused,

metallic world.

I was bare,


my thoughts laid out

as a blueprint

the expansive blank of an empty plot.

False starts of sputtering engines

we chase the sound with the slaps

and the cries of the bedsprings.
