Under You

By Doc Krinberg

PROMPT — Who am I today?

Eyes challenging

dark laughing contempt,

lapis iris holds me fast—

Caught in the riptide

of your eyes…my

needs bending to

your waves,

fading to your needs—

your domain.

On my back, lost

in the waterfall

of your hair,

your face over me.

The killing smile
