Erin Taylor: The Red Between Your Legs

Erin Taylor: The Red Between Your Legs

to fall in love before leaving a city




the red between your legs

wiping it on your thighs

the burgundy sheets are stained

with you

and I want to always sleep on them


there is something gorgeous about the

subtle silence of your smile on my roof

in the golden sunlight


your taste in my mouth

you you you you

are a body I am learning


how many moments of philadelphia sunlight

are going to be your body in my mouth
