Tonight's Poet Corner: Literary Arousal

Literary Arousal
by Belinda Roddie

So much ecstasy can occur
in the eleventh chapter of a book
where two lovers intertwine
and your fingers slip
beneath your beltline, massaging
the tender shadows beneath.

The lips part: Tongue extended,
breath short, little bubbles
of sound only bursting once
they make contact with the nearest
window pane.

Read on, my dear. Let your body
shudder from the black and blue,
the text leaving contusions on
your hypothalamus. All light
bursts from that cone, and with
a smile, you flip the pages
with warm and sticky hands.
