Waiting Game

Photograph ~ Diana Matisz


Waiting.

flame tipped sticks
of sweet almond incense
waver in soot-black shadow
curls of soft smoke
white velvet ribbons
round ankles and wrists

Submissive.

placid and still
halcyon island of pleasure
moist terrain illuminated
by sweep
of full moon's gaze
with a piece bitten out

Ready.

pulse tattoos
against trembling skin
both fevered and iced
near unbearable joy
exquisite agony
played out in the game of

Waiting.
