snake skin purse

he was the sort of viper
you wanted to be bitten by

stocking up on
antivenom rationalizations
as he coiled around your throat

how you cradled him to your breast
knowing full well
there is no fang
that pierces flesh lovingly

one must accept being a lover of reptiles
barring that
run over the damned thing with your tire

hey. i’m trying to decide if i should take that personally – being male and all. just kidding.

no fang to pierce flesh, but maybe to pierce hearts?

Truth be told, I love snakes. The Chinese consider it a copliment to refer to someone as a veritable snake. This one was beautiful, and left quite the mark upon my breast. Yes, he slithered gloriously.
