    Into the torrid zone,
    pushing into the darkness,
    the heat of the jungle surrounds me.
    Dripping pungent perspiration,
    the finger like branches of dark trees
    rested upon my straining shoulders.
    Tipped tremors shake my arms where
    the ripe venture strains onward, deeper,
    further into darkness, into the heart
    of the jungle, where silence is black.

    Black night melts around me,
    enclosing my lonely eye in night fire,
    pulling the jungle over me in a sultry
    and black invisibility; salient and pulsing
    with wet black paint and a riot of grasping fauna.
    From the tree, night sap flows into the jungle's
    life and the dark safari ends panting, spent-absorbed
    under the damp fauna and orgasmic jungle floor.

    Trying to slip this past

    Was trying to be purposely obtuse but I gave it all way in the last line--thank for reading it--I appreciate it--Amun-Ra
