Bioluminescence

fireflies flicker
along the edge of the bay
water reflecting light

Extensions

sun casting shadows
stretching across the white sand
the bay streaked with red

sun-baked

crisp sun-scented sheets

rasping gently across my

Tender sun-crisped skin

Pretenses

I brew you coffee-

your hand motions, stop pouring

at only half cup;

deliberately you add

until all you taste is cream.

what I should have said

two glasses of wine
fingertip skimming your lips
mine part to whisper

Enticing

Burrowed in blankets

Eyes squinched shut against the light

The scent of bacon

a long night

on the edge of sleep

even crickets are silent

window fan drones on
