But still catching me unprepared

Spread the love

An encore.
Could anything be more delicious than
the sky pale blue smudged grey?
The swirl of him in my mouth,
coffee lips
with an intention to honor with pretty tormentsβ€”
we are closer than physical,
a bumbershoot
forgotten while sauntering in the rain.
