Under Cover of Darkness
------------------------

Come to me
under cover of darkness
I'll meet you there
in the doorway
lips savoring
breathing synchronous
the doorframe hard
against my back

I smile to see
the glint in your
green eyes
by daylight, and
to laugh and seem
like anyone else
but I imagine
a cooler, hungrier you
in the dark of night
and my pulse
beginning to race
at the sound of your
footsteps in the hall
