I want to write words on you -
adventures and promises
high moments and lifetimes

ideas that inflame you
as you think of them
and crawl on your skin
til your hands flush up red
and flurry on your breasts.

Let my sentences manuscript
each curve and rise like lightning
to your throat, replacing
every thought and intention in your eyes

Let me in.
Let my ink stain your life
and my laugh write for hours.

I will take forever
with this warmly sharpened aim
and stencilsteel
hot tongue.
