Magpie Tales Photo Prompt 103: Laying On Of Hands











serpentine night


diabolonian dreams
beg the question of 
how many orgasms
in life are enough; 


how many lives are 
required to satisfy 
an insatiable fragrance
of flesh.

  1. That's a good question. I would venture to say one could never put a number to it. Probably goes for the second question as well:)

    Very nice Mag!

  6. I hate people who quote themselves yet here I am. I wrote something a few years ago that came to mind when I read this and your comment in my latest. As a generation, we have lost the capacity to love. We are all just mounds of flesh filled to the brim with lust, need and friskiness.


    I guess it's like monopoly. you gotta know the currency if you want to stay in the game.
