A taste of desire

For a moment

strangers on the terrace
gather 
of a unwanted
desire 
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

inhale
the toxic
exhale 
taste of desire.
