All arms and legs

across ignorant lovers
she’s fat, he’s unkempt
enveloping her with springy arms
squeezing her for music
she wheezes, delighted and scared
they’re still in bed
sheets under and over them
that precious enervating moment
just before release
all heat and liquid
squeeze and pop
all arms and legs
all tied up
these are tender crossings
no going back
is her dream his?
they are young
hungry in a thousand mouths
docile on one shoulder
her arms pet
his closed eyes
speaking, endlessly speaking
pregnant with a wish
that nothing will change
the two sink deeper into their sheets
the sun devours them
