UNDRESSED

A solo Intimenga by ai li
5 May 1997

 

 

he calls me after i've undressed

fingers clean for pleasure

 

moonlight in my navel

crushing silk with skin

 

his footsteps outside my room

turning the key with his teeth

 

smelling him in the dark

cicadas              stopping for us

 

he takes ny pout

salt on tongue

 

riding him before the storm

banging shutter        tearing lace

 

new arrival        barefoot on ash

the bed for two accomodating three

 

husky voice asking for more

ONE NIGHT STAND

An Intimenga between ai li and Alexis K. Rotella
London and Los Gatos, California
5 - 10 May 1997

 

 

the one night stand without a condom

a lifetime living with herpes

 

invisible noose in the bedroom

he goes hunting with his buddies for a week

 

coming back to an empty house and a note

his handwriting where he calls her a whore

 

the son any mother would be proud of           hiv positive

still he cruises on Castro Street

 

a mouth being used              gay poet

for the perfect woman he says he'd go straight

 

weeding in his leather thong

no ants in HIS pants

 

the hands under covers              insistent

"this belongs to me" he warns

 

in the safe           her little black book
