The Last Temptation

The flat smack of flesh on flesh
the pale gurgling of fire in my veins,
slick waves of vodka penetrating,
every misery within sorrow's coil.

I want to erase myself tonight,
I want the wind to take me
over this balcony into nothingness,
sweet nothingness...

Darkness makes everything lovely
makes the concrete seem whitest white
makes the asphalt seem black like oil
makes you seem beautiful tonight.

Laughing on the back patio,
drunken hilarity will be paid for tomorrow
but tonight, tonight I laugh
all sadness forgotten, tonight.

I am water, I am fire,
I am lust, I am desire
I am want, I am sin
I am your last temptation
