black strings

his perfect speech
stripped to the waist
his exquisite phrases
jeans tight and damp
his grammar
curls cling to his chest in a lick of new sweat
his diction
hair hangs black strings into his eyes
his pronunciation
steam fizzing off him
resonant vowels, sibilant consonants
touch me, touch me, touch me
