Traces of Intimacy

There’s no denying the power of eye contact made in the dark.

Traces of intimacy
can be so deceptive
like moose tracks
tracing a thorny path.

Or is it a maze
where an intention is dropped
to the floor
like a bright red thong
or an unused toy
that doesn’t belong
like that kiss that floated
between us
for a little too long
and your face turned
stone cold
because she watched.




We publish essays, and poetry about sex, sexuality and erotic relationships.
