Erotica 1

Artwork by Karla Caprali

Misnomer or
Ambivalence
Wins out set for
Seduction very
And yet and yet
If I say ‘yes’ what
Will it mean for
The cuffs are ready
In her I see Heaven
I see the cost of
Flight for the moments
Of ecstasy a ‘come-
Hither I surrender and
You are my prisoner
For you for a price
I give up my prudery’
Erotica Hell no and
It isn’t an invitation
For sexual bondage
No it’s just the price
She will have from me
