one side of desire

 

You followed me to the river’s frothy edge,

sipped the light, hollowed the ripe night 

into shadow. I am awake in these cold sheets 

remembering your pocket’s pulse on my wrist,

how you stood with eager hand in hand.

Do not follow me anymore. I can not see 

your eyes traveling my spine.
