about the book

Blue Sirocco

   (Lanzarote)
Sirocco sand clouds
Eat the sky
Smother the sun
Leave the lava beneath my feet
Cold like your hand
Pressed to the side of my face
Your lips moving slowly round
The words, round this body
Lost in the Atlantic
Erupting from restless plates
Deep deep beneath your
Heart beat - touches mine
The taste of salt
Lust mingled with Ambre Solaire
Goose bumps rising like mountains
From a smooth horizon
One slow bead of sweat
Roller-coasts over goose hills
Between breasts
A tantalising finger
Leading the storm onwards
