Occasional


The best part of a man might be wherever his body still touches yours in the morning

     Where, inside a long minute, I am not away

The blue tile of his shower always the geography of then, an entire season


It is blue,

          this swift completion, the distance made in sudden inches, the door pulling open,
               
                                                                                              the light passing through
