Smoke Consumes

Written by A.R. Salandy
Art by Lina Kivaka

Fever rises as hands draw
Pentagrams on olive skin
Delicate and reddened by loving lips,

Where satiated are fantasies fervent,
Steeped in ardour flaring,

For foggy evenings
Find raging release amongst the throngs
Of scorching passion,

Where under star-lit skies
Can impulse be fulfilled
And tender flesh

May be seared with sensuality, staggering.
