My seven this week come from my in-progress m/m story, Our Piece of Sky, once again.
This excerpt finds Joseph Gilante on a narrow scaffold in an empty building with the hot younger man he's vowed not to touch, but whom he has hired to paint clouds on the ceiling for his friend Teague. These are some of Joe's unruly thoughts while Manny's kneeling at his feet, looking at the how-to guide Teague has found in a magazine.
The image, The Creation of Adam, was one that always made me ache. Maybe the churning emotions the picture evoked were due to the sensuality of the almost-touch from the Creator. Maybe it was the nude male figure, the posture so masculine—one leg drawn up to expose his genitals without shame. Maybe I wanted to believe that God had, indeed, made all men in His image, gay and straight. I didn't have to study art or hang out with an artist to know the power in the image was in the gap between those two outstretched fingers. That slight separation was where the excitement lay; the tingle-inducing power of anticipated touch. And from there, such a small leap for me to see those fingers as cocks, extended and aching.
