When In Rome… ~ Tess Fox

Brown skin, smooth lips, bee stung

Hiding the expanse of her insatiable tongue

Lulling her with lyrics

Unrehearsed

Melodic original salty slang

Reserved for the ear of an ethereal queen

Rousing her

From her imperial dial

To the facets of flesh

Beneath her spleen

Swells to her touch

Her scent a mix of milk and musk
