I laugh
smirk really
at your hesitation
to engage


What the fuck more is there?

Okay, excuse my French,
I’m buzzing here a while

Have you ever seen
lights so bright?

Have you ever whispered
so softly like this
in starlight?

Shh . . .

See the quiet moon beams?
Purple black.

I will kiss you now
in the shade
of Orion’s Belt.

I am so happy
that you are here
to share a field
so cold, so wide.

Run with me wildly
this night
in the glen.
