S.A.I.L.

You wanted to sail
the seven seas
in search of spices,
so you found the same
when my teeth met your neck.

You wanted to sail
the seven seas
in search of sugar,
so you found the same
when my lips
moistened your body’s secrets.

You wanted to sail
the seven seas
in search of silk,
so you found the same
clutching my bed sheets.

You wanted to sail
the seven seas
and I wanted to give
you sea legs,
because we both know
you came for the pirate’s life.
