2:18 a.m.

The sheets burned to the floor
as I swung to retrieve you
blessed in your morning dressing
the swallows cooed for us
watching the willows bend
in humble obedience
I stole the shades
that dared to kiss the sun
draping your body
in a thousand degrees
holding my breath
in the sweat of your palm
as you swung to retrieve me
dressed in the morning's blessing
I burned to the floor
draping your body
in humble obedience
