The Lean

by Dan Linn

He leaned in trying to make continuous contact from ear to there,
there where he might lose blood and good sense to experience.
He wondered if he need mention the crackling sexual tension
felt in the implementation of anticipation of the implication.
Arousal was made evident by involuntary display of physiology
Her scent smelled of pheromones untethered by psychology.
All this in a soup of brain chemicals swimming in random chance
to any receptors that are willing, flushed and burning, they dance.


Author's Note: If dancing is sinful because of arousal, then this is the opera's libretto.
