Angel's Eye, by Suzanne Nielsen

Be my morning cup of coffee
wake me with your cunning lips.
Flaming Love
Flaming Love
Sprinkle our room
with confetti laughter
chase me, catch me,
love me hard.
Let love's tide
rise and drown us,
lave us with its waves of joy.
Let it rock us in its cradle,
leave us panting
on its shore.
Ignite the candle,
let it burn.
I'll dance for you
in red high heels.
Baubles jingling at my wrist,
I'll weave a web
to catch your soul.
Outside our window
New Orleans fog
stalks sultry morning streets.
Inside, time ends our Mardi Gras,
leaves love's madness
strewn 'round the room.
Even before you leave
I hear
those low-down
