“Autumn Bedroom Aegis” by Ulysses Tetu

bog mud & an old stone wall made love on the shoe mat of my apartment
tracking dirt & flora to the master futon
below the glossy fresca of heath ledger & jake gyllenhaal
wishing each other blow jobs
slapping ass against wall
mulchmeat twitching a wonderful force of nature, wildlife
for Man-made fingers of limestone, mouth of turf
binder of iron, clit of leather
dildo amethyst
weathered by thunderstrokes
back a familiar support for arms of peat jelly
quivering enough to generate electricity & desire
for a climax, something
worth the summit of two warriors of decay
