“Road Map” by Andy Ruffett

Road Map by Andy Ruffett

I saw her standing there and she smelt of burnt roses
I saw her standing there, her bleeding cherry
The smoke arose from her cheeks
Her lips pierced
I kissed the love on her body
We sat there and licked the chocolate off her skin
She grinned
Her powdered nose
Her toes
Twinkling like stars
Her eyes
I searched her, an adventurer
Fingerprints mapped inside
She came
Back I was
in the forest
For play
we knew
what to do
And we did it
Man, did we do it
until we lost it
the chart
I lost the charts
The charts that would overtake
her body
I rode the horse
until I arrived at the turning
                     I looked at the map
