swan-neck

I imagine the sex.
The rattle of it,
the sharpness,
their tongues,
His & Hers,
matching towels,
coffee mugs,
hipbones aligned
into planetary
miracles. Mouth
seams full of light,
joints aching,
heavy with it,
curving their bodies
like swans necks,
his fingers, before,
the same fingers,
before,
on a different body,
not mine,
less bulbous
and hesitant,
not mine,
open as a subway
station, eating
skin on skin on skin,
not mine,
like handprints
on foggy windows,
pressing her
into every shadow,
the same fingers, before,
pulling her throat strings,
before,
swallowing her
into litanies of
greedy prayers, before,
not mine, before,
the grime of them,
furious with it,
before.
—  Azra.T “Fuck You” 

It was once suggested that she was a swan in a past life.
“Your neck and shoulders need to be kissed” he observed to her with the pull of a thousand tides.
“They do”, she admitted.
But why bear her throat to a stranger?
