The Sensual Waxing Moon
by Jayesh Goyal

A slip of the sari - a glimpse of her fragrant & sensual oxters, the enticing looks in her eyes-I try hard not to gaze
The fragrance of her femininity was stronger than any perfume rich in pheromones
The fire began in the conjecturing game, as my masculinity is consumed by her passion
I try so hard to keep control, to hold myself back, but her seductive powers won't give me any respite
Finally, we start our lovers dance, prisoners of the infatuations - in a room together, where everything got tangled
First, my fingers tangled in her hair - my arms tangled around her neck
Her tongue, tangling mine - my legs, her legs - always searching for ways to get more tangled
Even her lips had a shudder in them, and they were so sweet and wildly red
She was a mystery unravelling - as hooks came free and the flower of her breasts blossomed before my eyes - a deeper urge came over me
I was her ampersand within the phrase “Wants & desires” - the bed became an ocean and we rode the tsunami waves naked - learning how to quench deep desires

bind, torture, slaughter, misplace
by Mister Rotten

what is the base of this bass?
the click-clonk of metal and pace,
laced-systematic clanging - a race
blades of deafening sound in a maze-
musical ace, a surgical saw blend a chase
from your audio-victim's breasts no, the face
name one of those numerous ways
to place the base in the case of a bass-
bind, torture, slaughter, misplace
