She moved across the dance floor like she was cutting copper, soft as spark and swift as oil underwater. Her summerlegs were shining and as she blew right past them there was just one question that the boys were asking.

She was smiling like there was something that I owed her. Felt fate’s secret centre shift a little closer. In her eyes was something deep and dark and dangerous, and suddenly the future it could not contain us.

She was sipping slowly on her Royal Jelly. A honey drunk was blazing deep within my belly. Her rivers wrapped around me, warm and phosphorescent. Kisses long and liquid, wild and adolescent.

In the golden glow of our first undressing ghosts of our former lovers came and gave their blessing. And as we fell together we felt a future blooming. Somewhere an orchestra had just finished tuning.
