The starlit sky captures
us in an enchanted globe
while comets sliver the night.

Thick clothes stave off
winter cold; We watch our
steamy breath form

and fade in front of us.
My nose is cold —
my body is painted with

warm desire. Licks of fire
leap skyward, sending radiant
heat towards our slippered feet.

You steal gazes of my moonlit
eyes — I see their green
reflection in your glasses.

Our armchairs touch,
our breath mingles
suspended in night-air.

I lean toward you,
run my hand across
your stubbled cheeks.

You press your thumb
into my lips, ever so softly,
pulling me into a close embrace.

Our tongues dance.
The fire leaps.
Our hearts beat

in the starry night.
