Cloth and Knife.

By TheProphetUntold

+--+ 

Incision.

The quick cut and rush,
the blade lends to begging flesh.
The mind clots and rusts.


Pressure...


...and pleasure erupts,
battle is violent sex.
All, for which I lust.

    I've always thought the minimal style of senryu/haiku, lends well to your words, like the skeleton of a powerful machine. A hint of cloak and dagger here, and just as quick and efficient, much praise. Scholar
