Monthly Archives: January 2013


We stayed in the sun for hours, welcoming the heat
the burn.
Bathing suits, untied at the back. dropped under us.
We pressed and were held by sand
that took the shape of our bodies
as the shape of itself.

By the time we got home, heat trapped on our skin
light still in your hair
I swear that when you turned to me to whisper
your breath was the breeze stolen from the ocean.
