Cloth and Knife.

By TheProphetUntold



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


...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
