summer sun pours wetly through the convex lens of my desire august heat weighs heavy on my chest and the days are far too long every golden haired thigh and muscled shoulder gleams moist with need in midday heat bearded and hungry faces meet my eye and linger in the desperate imagination of tangled limbs and salty tastes and sweat that drips into the thirsty earth of dreams
dreams of the sunbaked barefoot path that leads from his tongue to mine of that fork where we do not part but grasp our hair filled with summer heat bubbling our lust into a frenzied cauldron of mud baked sweat tongued too burnt to touch raw sunburned desire
dreams of the road less traveled thirst unquenched baked earth and no shade but me under you under me where i lie beneath your slick chest and find solace in our hearts boiled together in blood and meat and frenzied muscles that grip salted shafts of sweat and mud streaked flesh
bearded hungry faces meet my eye and days are long
by fall heat will crest sweat dry thighs abate but while august burns i will have that hot flesh at summer crossroads sun cascading through the lenses of our desire i will choose a path hoping it leads to embers finally fanned alive in you and us and in the red glow of a setting august sun
