like children, we wrap

like children, we wrap
our fingers tightly around
the end of summer

may we have the privilege to
worry about nothing else

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

there are a few looks

there are a few looks
you cannot mistaken –
when we recognized
that we had both
individually and separately
saran-wrapped our hearts,
perhaps we knew
there would come
a time when we would
unwrap them again

the evening arrives

our memories are wrapped

our memories are wrapped
in cushions of untruths. when
you say i recall, how much is it
a re-calling, a re-placement of
the conditions – the sounds,
the tastes, even that puncturing
aroma of sweet and savory,
the one that beckons bite me

in the hour before

in the hour before
waking, the body
is wrapped in the
most welcoming
sheets, with a
gift of vibrant
dreams to break
down
walls

i arrived wrapped

i arrived wrapped
securely

in the name of
my father, a hammock
imagining
two trees

when i depart, they
will unravel
these strokes
chiming
my name, and still
two trees
