Red Wine

Love me like red wine,
uncorked, breathing,
a full rich body,
deep aromas,
soft on my tongue,
sliding warmly down my throat,
revealing tasty undertones,
oak, blueberry,
a very fine,
well aged vintage,
mixing with and heating my blood,
intoxicating powers opening me
for love without defenses
as I continue to drink you in
savoring every last drop
you had bottled up.

The crash left an autograph,
below my shoulder but permanent,

precipitating on a needle
softened by fog,

my abstract reality,
then seemed concrete.

On the porch,
Our star hung high above us,
The flowers bloomed,
Trees wiped away sleep from their branches
I remembered the frost on my bones,
Floating candles of fireflies,
Laughter in the breeze,
And the rain dripping from the shingles
