the delicacy of falling from a great height…

September 23, 2006


your breath
on the back of my neck

the coming of Autumn

your voice in my head

a sam beam song

the pain in your anger

hum of late summer crickets

the memory of your kiss

sleeping lilacs

the smell of your skin on mine

sandalwood and earth

your back in the doorway

a faded photograph

smoke coiling from a nat sherman

ringlets of a brown butterfly

your body wrapped around mine

a cashmere coat

waking from the dream of us

falling…from a great height.
