Io

Dancing feet under the snowfields of JupiterWhile seventy-nine moons illuminate your cheekPiercing strength your jaw touches mineFire runs through meLips embrace, and I am dizzy in your armsGliding beside melting snowIce cools my skinIf only till you touch me once again Written by Joni Caggiano 4/22/20 Photo by Joni Caggiano
