Part 2.jpg

Publication and date: Lickerish Library, Sep 2023

Their kisses are like delicate petals that skim their mouths, leaving gushing impressions on my cousin’s face I had never expect to see there. The stranger reaches under Alicia’s leather jacket, clasping her full breasts attentively. There seem in no rush, their gliding gestures with which they intertwine their legs, becoming one with each other, melting, leaving only the stranger’s silver ring sparkling in the darkness.
