Aphrodisiac by Cherryl E. Garner

Improve my sex drive with a pill.
Focus sensitivity
toward my languid fingers
when I feel him sloped
above my neck and shoulders.
Mix the air so we both
breathe the kiss before
the kiss. Keep the distance,
breast to tensing breast, as close
as a new caress, one button thin,
and then make sheets as cool
as water over bodies.
Arc the muscles, rend
the rush between the two
like crushing amberstone,
like sandalwood and
rosey air.
