Port Injected
 
Shes compression and fire, breathing
piston and smoke.  Crankshaft hips
at 2500 rpm, she cruises.  Cams
glide on silk lifters.  With a fluid stalking crawl
she cycles along my surface.  Sucked through
valve ports the injected mixture ignites
into combustion. 
 
We stall spent as she idles
down to a throaty purr.

it was afterwards
when we were in the shower
 that she said
 
"your gonna write a poem about this"
 
"about what?" i asked

I can nearly feel her rpm rising and falling.
