The Viper says

Posted to Action Poetry




"My lips are smooth, and with them I know how to smother conscience somewhere in these sheets. Look at me naked, and I will replace sun and moon and every star in the sky."

--- Eyes glowing like an angel's
I'll come to your bed
and reach for you from the shadow,
you won't hear a thing.

On your dark shin my kisses
will be colder than moonlight,
caresses of a snake crawling
round an open grave.

Will you lay still for me
still like the dead,
with a rigamortis grin
