Hiding in the hollow of a tree
you paint my skin
with the colour of your saliva.
Drown me in a
wash of new love
with my arms held up against the trunk
I hang before you
helpless and glowing
and I sink into the flood of pain,
your gulping kisses.
I am tainted by your touch.
As the cops drive by
in a flash of white
I realise
I love you.
