La Bête Noir

Beast


His pre-timed growl
my alarm clock
hauling me by my hair
to pay justifiable homage
fragrant musk
curls
steamy promises
making my veins twitch
for ribbed handle grip
like a junkie anticipating
needle's prick
deep-throated scalding splash
guzzling ecstasy
lapping  last drop
quivering on  rim
leaves me hyped
begging for
another
cup of Joe

*Interesting factoid of the week.The video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas included an inaccessible minigame later dubbed the Hot Coffee mod. I don't know why that's important. I may have overdone the coffee this morn.

Weighing in at a trim 55 words this post is part of this week's Friday Flash 55 and was written in response to the Three Word Wednesday prompt: growl, hype, justify. Drop by these wonderful blogs to see what others wrote, or join in the fun yourself.

  2. Hmmm. This is what addiction is like before it turns on a person. It's no accident people get hooked.

  9. Is that a tree in the photo? With wolf eyes??? Sure looks like it. When it comes to coffee I'm an addict. Thanks for visiting my 55, Nara.
