I Love the Way Her Body Hangs


poetry By Adrian Ernesto Cepeda

Tea on the Knee

From Bruce McLean’s 1971

She loves to nakedly
sip, her eyes hungering
undressing me in the morning
witnessing the steam marveling
at her glowing skin, she loves
to feel the heat against
her knee, admiring all
that naturally hangs
from the outside, watching—
as my belly growls,
the sugary smoke rising
slowly up her thigh
as she brings the cup
to her lips, taking it in
loving that first swallow
of morning, she always
wanting me to kiss her
mouth wide open, spilling
much more than sugar,
her mouth loves savoring
the aftertaste stirring inside—
I can feel her craving
for my thirsty tongue
to become her most
wicked spoon.

I Love the Way Her Body Hangs

Gravity imploring me
to reach out to this
heavenly body softly
shaking nakedly above
me, on my knees,
afternoons like this
I worship every inch
of her as she is in cleaning
lady mode, my wife loves
to walk around au natural
suggestively feather dusting,
distracting me with her
curvaceous presence. I know
when she whistles, her signal
for me to crawl, already
hard on wood floors,
seeing her fingers tease
calling me over like
a goddess waiting for me,  
her treasures hang
so delicious, she holds
them up to my mouth
wanting me to suck
the juices nippling
from beneath her softest
fruit, hangs above me
in the laundry room
as she sits on the washing
machine, already wet,
each cycle turns her on
even more, waiting
for our dirty clothes
she wants me to slip
inside her tide,
sliding in with each
Kenmore rhythm,
I can feel her soaking
we both love this part
nakedly devouring each
other our favorite part
before we fold each
other exhausted, we
crave this heat,
clutching to her
on this jiggling
machine, so wet
in motion, our bodies
synch before she resounds
almost there, using
our mouths before
her casual ding
with the grins of her
final spin… I am
always in love with
the way, we bounce
together, her body
naturally wrinkles—
statically clinging to each
other’s delicates, nakedly,
as gravity implores us—
we tumble dry.
