Juan


He arrived
at night
flying
from Charlotte
to Honolulu
When I
saw him
we fell
together
like trees
in a forest
leaning
against
each other
his arms
encircled
me
pulling me
closer
as though
he was drawing
out my breath
in each others
arms
I found
solace
and peace

We ended
up in bed
lying side
by side
as though
we were children
camping
in our backyard
hands cautiously
touched
backs and flanks
buttocks and chests
kisses
lighted
like butterflies
on lips
and eyelids
moving
toward each
other
we pressed
together
like dog eared
pages
comfortable
being together
like a letter
in an envelope

We gave each
other up to
the other
taking
and taking
the body
the soul
the love
