your words are like syrup

your words stick to my fingers like syrup
they taste maple-sweet as i lick
the remainder of your sentences from my lips.

pour your paragraphs onto my skin
covering every inch of me with your poetics.

we can whisper luscious sonnets all night long
and in the flowing thickness of the morning
i’ll wake to kiss your amber-dripping eyes, like commas.
