The Best Lovers 2013

The Best Lovers

The best lovers can wait:

That’s what they’re good at.

They can take their time,

Press lightly, deeply,

Feel around, as if massaging,

Kneading muscle without passion;

Helping, waiting – for response?

Perhaps.

Most likely.

Waiting all the while,

The instant thrill

Expendable, forgotten,

As all pleasures are [and pain]

The second they are over.

Lover best is natural,

Sensitive to signals:

In touch when touching.

Touching back,

Movement ripening,

One or the other turned the other way

Up, down, even upside down;

It is there the genius of delay

Comes into play

When the best of lovers loves.
