As I Kiss Your Mouth
(translation|modification of Al Besar Tu Boca)
by Luis S. González-Acevedo
Over Caribbean sand, I lay your frozen body
so the sun can punish your naked skin.
Over your soul, I lay my expectant body
and your breasts rise as I kiss your mouth.
The seductive surf coats us with its foam.
Running through you,
the sea’s waves spark a frenzy of tremors.
Your breasts rise as I kiss your mouth.
Pressed against warm sand…
The oceanic furor of you floating against my chest…
The pleasure of your waist extended over mine…
Your breasts rising as I kiss your mouth…
Hasten the sway of your waves.
Intensify the brushing against my skin.
Surrender your body in erotic homage.
Celebrate your rising breasts as I kiss your mouth.
