remember me (as a time of day)
feeling your skin for the first time in the morning
sleep still heavy in my eyes
Running. My hand along your arm.
the Taste of Toothpaste
morning kisses

remember me (as a time of day)
when the sun streams (pours) into a room
afternoon
light
piercing and harsh
and a pause
in the bustle of the day (phones quiet)
a moment
of peace

remember me (as a time of day)
the violinist laughing on the underground
notes: fast, sharp, f
l o w i ng
smiling couples, holding hands [stolen kisses]
in love, so young
crunching autumn leaves underfoot
the bite of fall in the wind

remember me (as a time of day)
As dusk makes the world quiet
and purple
and calm
and at peace
the pausing of work:until tomorrow
stepping through the door with hope on your lips

remember me (as a time of day)
lying on our backs on the lawn
stars
spread
above
like
maps
to
the
heavens
holding hands
holding hearts
holding hopes
fireflies
and tea

remember me (as a time of day)
the moment right before sleep
t
a
k
e
s
you.
as you slip between awake and dreaming
the sigh of contentment on your lips.
remember me (as a time of day).
