Saturday night in a Parisian discothèque
Walls covered in black light paint
One mind within hybrids of fog and clouds

Machine haze wafting amid the lights
Hookah smoke sculpting an indica sunrise
Looking through glass of an indigo bulb

Making love in a Peugeot under the moon
Tasting lips sweet as meringues
Arching triumphantly on Champs-Élysées

Feeling my blood flambé
Feeling my lips brûlée
Feeling my gut sauté

Tissues molded like a pâté
Manhood rising like a soufflé
Expectations cut like a fillet
