Lost Afternoons

For A

She lay – lulled – alongside
& bared – stripped & under
her duvet – her slight-ness
[skinny heat & bone] & my
fleet lift [her in place] – As
I squeezed her nakedness
her breathing changed – in
her bed we traded stories –
sore lips on lips – & fingers
into & on & round [she was
scandalous in her needs!] –
Afternoon fucks – between
timetables of parenthood –
allowed us a separate time
from our rigid connections
[with others outside there]
