Light


Last night’s moon
hidden behind elderly
beards flaked into
our room last night
you asleep away from
me I watched the lunar
dance across the
rippling tide of your
chest and stomach I
move closer hand on
stomach like a couple
of old dogs and kissing
your eyes and throat
you growl in your sleep
a lion cub and roll towards
me like a back landed
turtle you place your leg
over my hip and whisper
my name in Spanish
Portuguese English
growling like a suspicious
dog you roll me into
moonlight and fireflies
kissing me
in the
light
wafting in
