Angels MAG

Flexing our toes in boots three sizes too big.
Tightening calf muscles
to keep naked feet
from slipping into the suction of clay.
I look back at you
through strands of hair,
one arm shot straight up,
the other trailed behind
sprinkled with mud and sand.
Your knees buckling as you lean forward
Clenching my sleeve between caked hands.
And two of us lying arm-to-arm
Making angels in the mud.
