this moment

you walk up to me
stand here in front of me
big for a person your size
confident and assured
look me square in the eye
what a fine and
steady gaze you have
what a womanly aspect
you are capable vital
strong alive in control
and how it all slides
apart as you glance
at my nostrils flaring
how your eyes widen
as I lean in
as you watch me
smelling you
