Body Electric

Finger tips tracing
The topography of my body
With the patience
Of a dedicated cartographer
Or a parched braille reader
Drinking in a captivating story

Touch that says
I see you
I hear you
I feel you

Skin cells sing
At first localized
Lighting up
Under your fingers
Then I notice
As you follow my shoulder
It ripples to my fingertips
As you outline a rib
My outer thigh tingles
And my toes slightly twitch

I track these referred sensations
Until they blur
I no longer feel
Distinct points
All of my surface is
Vibrating with
No separation between parts
The entire organ of my skin
A symphony.
