Unmasked

with a bit of luck!

 

Strobes froze
radial flashes on cobalt irises
as jet black pupils, stereoscopically adept
as two lasers locked on a hostile object
transfixed me with pulses
at the chiasma of convergence
holding all my hopeful urges
firmly at bay
 
Till a detached eyelash
unnerved her coolness
floating slowly downwards
it glanced off rouge-buffed cheekbone
into dry martini, and
penetrating surface tension
sank with rhythmic oscillations
 
Unmasked in an instance
deep in hormonal instincts
stomping bulls brayed on mainland foreshores
hot cows bit hard on restraining chain-posts
and, beguiled by this strange intimation 
she conceded to my prior desire
started chatting
