The Aftermath of Night, a Welcome to Day
The Aftermath of Night, a Welcome to Day

Light spattered dusty boards live
with a stretching creak,
as empty sideways glasses glint,
their rouge stained sediment, parched,
while languid creatures wake to the day
and silence cut by feathered wing;
inside, human thoughts on dreams descend,
and swallow breath anew.

Silent stir, searching for clarity,
arms entwined from lust lost to slumber,
mouths dry as blistered earth,
bitter taste from sweetness soured,
as awareness veiled by numbing mist
come slowly into focus,
one eye ventures to scan the field,
grasping for some memory.

Beside him, a beauty lies prostrate, unconscious,
succulent breasts in silhouette,
slow descending lines to soft rolling valleys
of velvet flesh and comfort abundant,
pleasures undeniable,
her lips, plump and slightly open
still, hold the memory of passion.

Without thought, he leans forward,
her soft red lips too much to resist,
brushing her ethereal hair aside,
he leans over and longingly kisses her deeply.
With one sweeping elbow to the face
she turns away, face contorted.
‘Clean your teeth at least,’ she growls,
bringing night to an end.

    Nicely penned, erotically enticing, the aftermath of the night before a suiting claim to two lovers. I’ve had a few of those nights back in my day, the nights were always fun and exciting, especially with a beautiful woman to enjoy them with, but indeed those mornings were often wrought with hangover pain, thankfully I never smoked, but if I did, a Tylenol, smoke and lots of coffee would be needed to fully recover, oh and yes, brushing ones teeth before the morning kiss, along with a gargle or two of your favorite mouth wash was a welcome from the other party receiving a smack gob in the morning light. Ha Ha….enjoyable read Tony. Cheers.
