Telling Touch

The passion is dead.

The lightning is cold and cries Winter in Summer's hea[r]t.

The telling touch of his fingers

Is gossip between sharp teeth and serpent tongues--

With each night passing,

They grow darker and more inside themselves,

Not each other.--

The words stick.

The kisses stop.

The heartbeat halts...

And continues on.

The End
