Dark Velvet Musk

 

He was a dancer

I remember

He walked out

Body painted in colors that glowed

In scattered spotlights

He carried something small

A silver object

To a spot on the floor

Opened then lit

Well

Sterno

 

He moved around

He stilled

He conjured that I could tell

To mystical music

Where star-stream fingers reached

Down my back, my waist

Surrounded spectators all

His body swayed more

Gyrations, no trance

He stilled his full length

Standing tall, stepped over

As a flame stretched high

Long tongue licked caressing his jeweled prize

 

My claws extended

My smile increased

Exposing elongated teeth

Venom dripped

I didn’t muster a swipe

As a woman standing in my shoes shouted

Demanded in a scream he

“Burn them off!”

Deep, rich

She chortled such glee

Turning his head

He danced toward her

Toward me

 

But I won’t give in

Nothing I’ll leave

I need more than this

Is that all there is?

What’s in a name?

Ultimate Fantasy they stake claim one and all

Dare you boast such fame?

I grinned

Elongated bared again

Blood and venom

Lips full to bursting

My smile won’t quit

Maybe later we’ll see
