Reader Poem — Adrian Ernesto Cepeda

Adrian Ernesto Cepeda wrote this poem inspired by the September Poetry Prompts:

Slithering on her back

Tongue thirsting her extreme
snake tattoo reaching out
from her spine, calling
seductively, wanting to
bite and swallow my skin—
the tail slinking up towards
her rattling shoulder blade;
as her skin ink spoons from
her naked back, so serpent
like I love rubbing my fingers
over her pulsating rhomboideus
major, feeling the hunger while
she turns around constricting
my breath enwrapping her
arms so eloquently, demanding
my flesh how could I resist?
Readying her prey, I can tell
from the face, her tattoo has
a taste only for me.
