eating you out
is like biting into
the last juicy fruit
still connected to
an exotic tree …
on a post-apocalyptic
rogue planet,
which is about
to crash into
the center of
god’s third eye,
freeing it
from experiencing
anything but pleasure.

eating you out
is directing
an orchestra
to sink into the
ground, to
let its surface
and turn into
a liquid field
of static peace.



sucking your dick
is holding a gun to a lollipop,
enticing it to
give up the tasty liquid inside
before taking out the outer
sucking your dick
is commanding a spaceship
by intoxicating its systems
and steering it
into the event horizon
of a lake of
cherry lip gloss.
I like my mouth
to spell out
the code
which holds the secret
to your inner calm.



double penetration

is a
sensory deprivation chamber
which induces a
silent hallucination
of you
floating along the spiral
path of the galaxy
only to be sucked into
the black hole
of what you used to think
pleasure was.
double penetration
is a masterpiece
of female anatomy
expressed as
liquified thought
projected onto a mirror
within a mirror
next to a woman’s
pulsating pussy.
