So You Like Dante

 POETRY
So You Like Dante by Richard Hell

Dante and Beatrice didn’t have this, did they:

penis, tongue, and fingers piercing

clinging rings of muscle lips? I do,

I want to kill you

with it so you’ll want it

always. Thus I hope

to compose concerning you

what has never been written

in rhyme of any woman.

You’re sitting on the chair

and I fuck you there.

I fuck you in the mouth,

I fuck you in the ass.

I pull on my cock while I stare in your eyes.

“Ass” and “eyes” are a very good rhyme.
