“I Want to Sleep with You Elbow to Elbow” By: Joyce Mansour

I want to sleep with you elbow to elbow
Hair entwined
Genitals enlaced
With your mouth as a pillow.
I want to sleep with you back to back
Without breath to keep us apart
Without words to distract us
Without eyes to tell lies
Without clothes.
I want to sleep with you breast to breast
Clenched and sweating
Glistening from a thousand shivers
Consumed by the wild inertia of bliss
Splayed on your shadow
Pounded by your tongue
And to die between the rotted teeth of a rabbit
