More – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

At dVerse guest host Sanaa has invited us to write exploring erotica as a literary genre (what makes a poem erotic?).

dVerse Poets – Poetics – Erotica


“Speechless, we made love in mist and clouds.” Lan Ling


She smiled 
as she teased two cherries
with her glistening lips,
rolling their smoothness
around her eager tongue,
grazing them gently
until they surrendered
their sweet juice upon
her chin, and he smiled
as she took two more.

    This is classily erotic! It so elegantly leads the mind toward senuous thoughts.

  15. I agree with Grace, less means more, the imagination does the work. Fruit is very sensual.
