They guzzled refreshment from the goblet
and felt invigorated, yet filled with a hunger.
Slipping off her translucent garment,
she left it draped across the floor
where her slender shape
rippled in sensuous rhythm.
He glided nearer as she gazed with eyes
like black beads, gleaming with anticipation.
He nuzzled her silky flesh with rising fervor.
Soon they trembled in sinuous symmetry;
muscles moving in fascinating foreplay.
Their aroused bodies slowly entwined;
instinctively the jigsaw of their sexuality
merged as the mating ritual of the couple
of corn snakes reached its climax.
