As if the slope wasn’t slippery enough
You rubbed your body in Sweet Sandalwood
And sat under the sun

Warm and soft and buttery,
Reflecting Browns and Blues
Radiating sensuality

You burst with light
You move with soul
And your sea salt caramel hue’
Sure set the tone

My blood pressure Rises
My heart beat increases
My pupils dilates
My breath weighs a ton

Give me a taste your own medicine
And soothe my cravings
Beneath my moon

Do not deny
My claim
I’m still covered
By Medicaid

For now
