Woman with Dove
I laid my head on his lap in Bryant Park/ as we waited for the summer movie to start/ he outlined my face with his finger / like a Picasso with a dove.
Sprinklers and Flower Crowns
We ran through sprinklers/ sat in a kiddie pool and drank coronas / played peekaboo with our swimsuits on the barks of the trees/ I made a flower crown over your eyes/ wrote forever on your chest.
Churchyard of Stars and Brachiosauruses
We went camping /in the night we took mushrooms/ the black cherry sky had a churchyard of stars/ our fingers twist with one another’s / as a herd of Brachiosauruses walked between mountains.
