I have to post this every once in a while to remind myself.

Fire and Ice

We made love by night-lite.
With masks,
We watched ourselves
In the mirror
As we morphed into creatures.
You, the Leopard King
I, the Ice Princess,
Voodoo and rhythm building.
The drumming of our hearts in the background,
We crescendo
And move into the light.
