What are these people doing?
What slow dance, moving one
to another, pairs of arms clasped
around backs, necks entwined
like swans. And rocking as if the ground
beneath them beats with a rhythm,
fluid. Both exotic and nostalgic.
Not the clutch of passion, the simple
meeting of belly to belly. Like food
but sweeter, meatier.
I salivate tears. My whole body
hungering for touch.
