Labios de Margarita

She calls to me with her sugar lips

Icy stare and golden wish

To drown me in my sober wits

What's your name? I say

Ella dijo, Margarita

Under shroud and under veil

Her sweetness runs my wet tongue stale

On the harshest night, she never fails

Who are you? She says

Soy tuya, Margarita

Laughter, lust, and lemon lime

Salty sex in sands of time

Sun so bright it drives me blind

What do you desire? She asks

Te quiero, Margarita

So pale her skin, so fair her face

Smoothest touch my fingers graced

Slipped away from day's disgrace

What do you feel? She smiles

Te amo, Margarita
