in the middle of

frost clings to the first

here is a reminder

here is a reminder
in the middle of
a wintry afternoon
that i do not deserve
you – my legs
wrapped up so
carefully in
your legs, and for
a small, exposed
piece of me that still
strays with the
inescapable
draft in the room,
a warm hand lands,
perches, massages
periodically into
that tickle threshold,
in case i were not
already completely
yours, present

watch us engineer

a week later, snow

the cold has settled

even the midday sun

even the midday sun
plays harmony
to what lies
in the gutter
, after
a particularly harsh
morning,
when you and i
could no longer
look at each
other, nor shrug
off the sudden chill
.

there is a chill that comes

there is a chill that comes
quite suddenly – like
waking up to remember,
then waking up to
remember and waking
up to remember
