Daybreak

 

Mornings sipping tea kettles

Meters of smoky poetry and earl gray rainbows

December leaves

Density

Palms

Feet tangled

In juicy chestnut threads

Apple cinnamon candles

Trembling light

Propped pillows and throbbing sheets

Thighs damp with the temperate moans of a

not quite lackadaisical Saturday

My pulse skips a syllable

Your thick fingers pluck vertical rhymes

To a cool tune

Whiter than the center of a heartbeat
