the adventure ends
Bahamut

with the couple in a boat
 1
or a train or some kind
 2
of unusual vehicle they
 3
don’t have to actively drive
 4
while they eye each other
 5
in a way that makes sex
 6
a certitude once the camera
 7
pulls off their flawless faces
 8
the smudges and sweat
 9
only enhance their godlike
 10
stature as the distance between
 11
them and the closely averted
 12
death/disaster/tragedy widens
 13
but even those two about
 14
to rut with a passion you only
 15
managed a couple of times
 16
in your teens and felt self-
 17
conscious about because it made
 18
you feel so animal and here
 19
you were a human being supposed
 20
to respect your partner and call
 21
them back the next day while
 22
all you could think about
 23
was the taste of their lips
 24
that amazing sexy squelching
 25
noise you both made together
 26
the way you can still smell them
 27
even after you showered
 28
put on clean clothes and ate
 29
even those two presented
 30
as an embodiment of eternal
 31
afternoon – healthy and strong
 32
even they will one day suffer
 33
the ironic sag of advancing decrepitude
 34
and have to admit that the ability
 35
to have a decent conversation
 36
and share secrets and hard won
 37
truths is sexier than all
 38
the sport fucking a body can endure
