Quarantaine (40th Birthday) – Jack M. Freedman

Saturday night in a Parisian discothèque
Walls covered in black light paint
One mind within hybrids of fog and clouds
Machine haze wafting amid the lights
Hookah smoke sculpting an indica sunrise
Looking through glass of an indigo bulb
Making love in a Peugeot under the moon
Tasting lips sweet as meringues
Arching triumphantly on Champs-Élysées
Feeling my blood flambé
Feeling my lips brûlée
Feeling my gut sauté
Tissues molded like a pâté
Manhood rising like a soufflé
Expectations cut like a fillet
