Poem… ¿what inspires me?

¿what inspires me?

–december 31, 2018–
méxico city, méxico

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

island mountains against my small existence
a palm tree’s sensual sway
and the atlantic nights that drown my arrogance
caribbean breezes hissing through banana leaves their say
and the nostalgia of their vital scent from far away
the scorching sun against my skin over warm sands
while sea waves season me with foam and salt
and the way guava ignites the ocean’s salivary glands
the little frogs’ shrill song followed by their indiscretions
the moon’s kiss of rum and sugarcane
and night’s surrender to coffee passions:
the sweet and bitter darkness that humid skies can’t tame

¿what inspires me? will appear in a future book of poems and stories (release date | July 2020)–

Gothic Jill’s Bite

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

Pose in catlike crawl.
Displace your weight away
and gazing back enthrall
me with each gothic sway.

Incite your overbite:
pierce your lower lip
and let blood in sacred rite.
Taint your tongue’s arousing drip.

Suffer trails of red droplets
trickling down salt colored breasts in rush.
Licking skin, I’ll stain sunsets
with my tongue to spike your blush.

Nestled in your thrusting flair,
I’ll succumb to sway’s despair.
