Feelin’ Myself

Feelin' Myself

Without a stimulant of intent,
I’ve discovered a familiar hint
of beaming sparks, radiant
within my belly. Hushed consent
is gifted with fingers on decent,
circling provoked segments
to wet the remaining percent.
I feel myself until untold events
leave minute bits of evidence
on fingers and linens. Spent,
that initial piece of stimulant
diffuses into fading remnants
of sensational, joyous content.
I lay back down, as if to rest,
yet I am lost in my own exuberance,
ready to repeat my fingers’ descent.
