You lie face down
chest rising in a pattern all your own
on the bed we’ve shared for two nights
arms in a triangle supporting your head full of curls
You are a linear progression…after this triangle
wrapped in the cover cloth
thighs touching each other
parting at the knees to reveal long muscular and hairy legs
Your feet hang over the edge of the bed
your 6’2” frame too lengthy for the double-bed masquerading as queen
Afraid to wake you
I tiptoed out earlier to great the New Year sun
You are still arranged neatly on the bed when I return
I come near to give you a kiss
you mumble: I have dragon breath
I retort: so what?!
I attempt to spoon and fall back to sleep
I end up fidgeting, disturbing your morning slumber
I give up and grab my journal
I must begin the year right
I promised to write more this year
I watch you sleep as I write…
I want to tell of the blissful couple o’days
we have spent together
after what seems like easily a few thousand text messages
flirting, sharing our days, ourselves, with each other
This spur-of-the-moment trip has been everything I could’ve dreamt it to be
Yemaya waves swelling, crashing, dredging up sand to dump on the shore
warm peanut butter sand beneath our feet
bonfires giggling and tickling the sky
cotton balls of clouds giving glimpses of the heavens
medium-rare local bands providing the highlife for our steps
I couldn’t have planned any of it
In fact, I’m glad we just showed up and went with the flow
From the first undressing after our frolic in the ocean to the harried photo shoot as we rushed to catch the cab
It was great not to have planned any of it
