Stud's LamentTo Royce Sykes's next piece

Meet Me In the Dark
Meet me in the dark where 
all cats, toms and queens, 
are said to look alike; we 
know better; eyes flicker 
from mischievous to intense,
glimmering as our songs rise
and fall in pitch, discordant 
to some; those who listen more 
than hear know we harmonize with 
passions best known in shadow; 
our dance slow writhes into 
frenzied gyration; where we brush, 
scratches and bites mark fond 
passage, wounds to lick in daylight
hours and consider what it is that
drives us together; so seek me in 
the dark of your desires and you will 
find my shadow ever slinking there.
