I’m looking at you

I’m looking at you 

the beauty
of your silky smile
the velvet sound
of your voice
your absorbent silence

your warm and slow
diagonal gait floats
as if it were snubbing
the plants
bristling on my skin

your skin
messes up my hair
your hair
the scent
that lives in my mouth

my mouth full of teeth
your absence
the muscle or the shoe
that I kiss

I kiss your legs
you sob
your toes 
are on my chest
my chest about to explode

your eyes
are burning
your most intimate hair 
on the edge
of your forest

and I moan
my demolishing tongue
razes the lower and the upper
part of your trembling body
your body pure as amber
