by Brad Casey

wow, the moon pt.32

 

six drinks in

the hollow night

you kiss me

juniper angelica

cardamom and rose

 

there are

children in my lips

cinnamon and pear

and I’m there

in a dream

 

in our house

victorian lily struck

summer afternoon with

the way that the sun tastes

 

sunlight through white

lace curtain window

on my face

hot

waking

 

to you

the laughter

of you

and children

hands on my body

 

plucking

groping in

time

still

in this

 

fantasy of

a kiss

in the dark

of where

we actually are

it’s winter  

and you walk

 

in the cold

alone

for home

with your partner

a good man

 

I like him

how is he?
