with one smooth movement you spread my bones
in the low, grey winter morning
beneath the covers            we are soft
and strong            appetites so vast we astonish ourselves
fierce and delicate            our heads seem disjointed from
the hips to commune with each other            the all-night
lamp shyly burning            and when the bell goes off
for the working day            or if hail is beating outside
flooding the lawn            these are the pleasures of togetherness
hot and tender            filled with surprises
your mouth marks my flesh            my fingers searing into your back
we chuckle at something funny you say
delightful and wild             in the thick of winter
