Miles and I : GNS Repost (For Cindy)

Rate: 24 Flag

Miles and I, we slake the night
full on shift to manual
slip to 80
Miles leans back and smiles
Miles is the tilt in my hips
Miles is agave,  as it hits my feet
comes back up  hot 
Miles is the cold breaking wave on my head
hair dripping
last vestiges of clothes on sand
as I hit the night surf
Miles is the small bead of sweat
under my hair
unshaven chin rough against my neck
dancing late into the night
Miles meets me at midnight
Miles and I
we are friends with the dark
we take comfort in the shadow
Miles leads me to country roads
leans back
gives me the go ahead signal
turbo rising
red wine and sex
sweat and trumpet
Miles and I
we slake the night. 
Originally posted October 2010, hope it's new for some and a nice look back for others here. Had a few requests and felt like a little Miles myself.
Generique is from the soundtrack to a French film by Louis Malle that Miles did. Amazing if you get a chance to hear or watch on Youtube his performing Ascenseur pour l'échafaud 
is the name of the album.
