the lady found  
her breath was no easier to catch  
when she was gone from him    
than when he stood in her eye  
her mind did not slip him away  

the pass of a cigar    
from finger to finger  
tip of white Panama    
tilt of almost smile  
touch of finger  
on neck
cheek  
elbow  
wavered in the sultry air  

when she slept
charcoal man appeared
from the night shade
where he was taking his ease
waiting
beautiful in his glory
was Satan not an angel
in fact
the most beautiful of all angels
did he not play lovely instruments
timbrels and pipes
was he not clothed
in every precious stone
did he not bring
the smell of damp earth
patchouli  
lust
to tempt

the lady prayed tears

Even though patchouli covers the smell of reefer well... The scent of sulfur will have to be gotten used to.  No amount of tears will put out the flame.   But...  I believe a few well placed drops of vanilla will have the home fires burning.   ::smiles::    enjoyed

lady one...
she is delightful in her dance
pressed against the glass
of that forbidden window

cohiba's leave memories they say

enjoyed you here

This truly made me taste a sigh.

"the lady found  
her breath was no easier to catch  
when she was gone from him"

I understand.
