A taste of desire

For a moment

strangers on the terrace
of a unwanted
by most

a strike of a match
a look where eyes lock
a whisper that sends shivers
the scent of you
that overwhelms

your cool breath
as you lean in
to light
my cigarette

the toxic
taste of desire.

Inhale. Exhale. Both probably should carry a health warning.
