we have lain

we have lain


we have lain
three soft nights
naked as spoons
beneath warming sheets

together—

we two gather
those soft nights
like honeysuckles
picked and sucked

together—

we gather moments
like leaves pressed
against our skulls
until they bury there

together—

we two separated
in the flesh
of one mind
honeysuckle sweet

together—

            tear aside the sheet
            and find us there
            wrapped in each other
            lovers mindful lovers
