A Wide Openness

I was as parched as the plants looked
Brittle like the dusty ground 
Thirsty for any drop
A glance
A morsel
Affection my drug of choice

The landscape 
A wide openness
A mirror of my desire
The foreign taste 
Acidic and adventurous 
I felt lucky to take you on

Do you see my body
As it ages
From above…
Do you watch me?
Or only when I conjure you?
I think of you
When it feels good
The unforgettable slope
The curve
The dip
I hope I licked it
