sexy and well written. definitely paints a picture, but a kind of smoky/hazy one.

My God you are amazing. I saw that you reviewed something of mine a long time ago, and I thought I'd return the favour. Wow. Full of emotion, hidden agony, and an insatiable lust. My favourite kind of poety.

This is excellent: the diction, emotion, and description.
I would love opinions from a talented writer like yourself on my work; it would mean a lot to me!

this is exactly how i've always wanted to see
poetry that deals with (heavy) sexuality:
with a lot of commas and the sort of detail that
almost makes me think i have synesthesia for all
that i confuse the smells and images
from the dissolve of breath to the schnapps
to the fucked-lovely Lotus (which is absolute brilliance,)
and the tiny bit of epistrophe just about makes my day
because i am such a sucker for repetition.

There’s a lot of smoldering sexuality in this creation - it’s hot, like it’s been dropped, and picked back up again hot.
I got a sense of being chased, you chasing them, them chasing you, the lines: ‘riding the coattails/of your words.’ were very amorous. It’s an intelligent kind of sexuality, no grunting shafts or moaning, just educative thought. I really enjoyed this piece, keep up the good work.

In some ways, this poem reads a little different from the poetry I remember first reading of yours, but it is just as brilliant. The stories you weave with your words and the emotions always manage to leave me speechless. I really like the way certain words were capitalized in this, and the repeated phrase of "et toi" was an interesting touch. I enjoyed the second verse the most I think. Take care.
