The water, more than real life

April 2nd 2015
The water, more than real life

 

I owe
of leaving

Sit on my eyelids as I watch everyone enter and go

It only comes
in moments,
in bending light rays,
in well timed words and wind and a wet strawberry
you pluck from its stem
with your mouth
at a roadside fruit stand

Frowns,
into our mouths

Take two sharp breaths in, the second longer than
the first

And the kiss, the lips
