Lovers in the morning*


It was you, same lover

Stretching past 6ams with me

The hiccups of the clouds

witnessing the tango of our arms

above my little head, there was

your breath, the soundtrack of

my first hallucinations

your smell, the movie to begin

this weekend’s marathon

below the soles of your feet

are the cream-colored walls of my room

what a pleasant breakfast

your kiss on my forehead

and all the way below.
