I Am Venus

This poem you are about to read is one of just a few sensual pieces that I'm publishing in my next poetry collection, Northside Cries & Lullabies. I'm working my booty off trying to release it this Summer folks! I'm hella excited!!!


I Am Venus

Mouth against heart,
against hips
We are parallel,
as your lips absorb the taste of my fever.

Eager hands journey south
to the knees.
North, to the thighs,

I am Venus
And you, sir

You are divinity.
