Hot breath of all desire by Diane Dehler

Hot breath of all desire

rises straight high
a spirit wind, winged
beast awakened

Poised on a cliff’s
steep jutting edge
with sharp claws
as pink as dawn.

Embodied writing, the
pale of me and your
molten leopard flesh.
Hot breath of all desire
splattered with pattern

Of wild rosettes.
A stealthy approach
sly leopard licks salt
of my flesh, feeding

On my sheer wild
nakedness -- bleeding
creation all over me.
Solitude of a leopard
joins passion.
