Looking up while you were fucking me, I tried to grab a falling leaf.
But I missed; I couldn’t quite reach the wish that fluttered in the breeze.
Branches gather, cross and weave our worn anxious self-discoveries
swaying unable to still uncertainty. We circumscribe this Eden as reality.
When I promised forever did you feel time stop?
A treetop to trick and treat each other through all the foreboding seasons.
Serving a weather of intuition and delusion on our bare skinned austerity,
where you reveal what I already know, buds of what I’m yet to learn
and the naked roots that remain unknown by you, twining into my spine.
When you promised forever did I feel time stop?
Exhibiting our shameless serenity, you lie unclothed and exposed by me.
No glasses on, you cannot see edge of the field where the April shower of
shocked dog-walkers and ramblers pass. Smiling discreet an acorn of propriety
for our forbidden love-making, I marry you fast amongst nettle withered grass.
