1. “curled into the afterglow” …. and then as we read on, we realize only one is truly feeling an afterglow. Your words evoke an uneasiness in me the reader, a wariness….all that glitters is not gold indeed.


  2. The rawness of libido and passion that clouds the intellect and blocks the heart is not always attractive.


  3. I like how you’ve taken the old saying and given it another meaning, Carol, and not a particularly pleasant one. There is a sense of warning in the way the opening line continues, cat-like, into ‘I felt your hands clawed in the fabric, / prepared to tear the seconds from an hour’.
