Lucia Mussollini
Edinburgh, Scotland
2002

Longing
to touch your ribs
your lithe undulating stretch
to have yourself on top of me
beside me, encompassing me
just losing everything

no precedent will help you, gladiator of mine
we'll be before they invented time
inside me aching
gripping and shaking
trying to escape but
never quite making
it
has a life and a death of its own
a time zone
