Grædig

… ‘Piggish’
behind
… such a
beautiful Mask.
Pitchfork
embrace,
wet-enough,
yet, emotion
-less… More!
“You taste
like ‘Avarice’
… copper
and brass…
through
slutty-fingers.”
I persuaded
the ‘Sweet
One’ to
coyly whisper
“Ill-ic-it”
for the Camera
… now,
business
is business
… knees
and BEG!!!

* ‘Grædig’ is an Old English word meaning ‘ravenous, greedy, covetous’.
