Mild-mannered Kurt discovers a secret side of himself when Luc, a persuasive stranger, follows him off the subway. What begins as a casual affair evolves into an erotic dilemma as Luc teaches Kurt to find the pleasurable side of pain. Torn between his addiction to Luc's unique punishments and a strong desire for freedom, Kurt attempts to end their trysts before he surrenders to the chill of passion.
Part contemporary anti-romance, part surrealistic tale of sexual awakening, "Poison" was first published in 2009. This short story is not a factual portrayal of the BDSM lifestyle, nor is it tailored for readers craving a love story between the two main characters. It is merely a dark incantation of the author's twisted mind.
Warning: "Poison" contains borderline dub-con, explicit M/M sexual situations, and depictions of abuse. Reader discretion is advised.
