midnight—
you roll over
and wake to the moon                                                  David

        my kisses follow
        the curve of light                                                      Jacquie

our legs entwined
wordless
we fall to the floor                                                           Michael

        a tease of breasts
        and squeeze below                                                Michelle

my tongue
in your mouth
you draw me in                                                                 James

        rising on the sultry air
        the yowl of a cat                                                       Vicki
