the light

June 7th, 2023 · No Comments

i believe in gallons of powerful coffee
laced with quarts of cream

pyramids of raspberry danishes
high-stacked beds of juicy steaks
cigarettes of marijuana and tobacco

fine dry wine
martinis with olives

the curve inward of a woman’s waist
(nature’s most perfect line)

the wet spot
the way she comes under my touch
her smile and the light in her eyes

and the light
my god, the light!
