Dichotomies

image by Nata Ibragimov
I love our dichotomies
Your dark bristled face
against my fair cheek
Tender lips
crashing together in a violent kiss 
Your hardness
against my soft
And when our bodies part
sizzling droplets of sweat
become cool puddles on our skin 
tiny swells
under the turning fan blades.
