She dabbles her fingers
in his dreams – leaves
silvery smears on every
surface – trails his desires
behind her, like a
fox-tail robe. She smiles
the way a cat yawns,
unconscious of teeth,
no malice, nothing
personal, just that need
to toy a little.

A quadrille for De at dVerse. Our word is “dabble”

  1. I love the presence of this character, Sarah, leaving her traces everywhere, even in his dreams, and trailing his desires ‘behind her, like a fox-tail robe’. And the need to toy a little – she’s a bit of a predator.
