The water, more than real life

The water, more than real life


I owe
of leaving

Sit on my eyelids as I watch everyone enter and go

It only comes
in moments,
in bending light rays,
in well timed words and wind and a wet strawberry
you pluck from its stem
with your mouth
at a roadside fruit stand

into our mouths

Take two sharp breaths in, the second longer than
the first

And the kiss, the lips
