All the Myriad Rivers
 Under your Skin

Suck me into your emerald eyes
Pull me all the way down
Your optic nerves

Slithering around
In the back of your mind
I crave your pheromone inveigle
Ache for the acrid
 smell of your wet fur

You snap bolt upright
 your eyes abruptly wide
As I slide down your spine
In quest of your adrenals

You shiver as I
Golden liquid fire
Course all the myriad rivers
Under your skin
