cicada étude 1 lucifugous

NOTICE: This video contains images of gay sex. If dude-on-dude action is not your thing, move on. Oh yes, definitely NSFW.

Strange how being naked dissolves
The illusion of our bodies,
Clothes like border guards
Deserting their posts.

Feeling him I think of you.

A memory as red as meat,
As vibrant as crickets,
Desire as simple, as keen
As the thing under childhood’s bed,


To give kisses to the dream
That is our flesh,

As translucent as jellyfish,
As transient as tadpoles,

Evolving in the night.


All the études may be viewed here.
