Early Hours


When the sun has yet to drag itself over the frosted hills and I turn over

it is your scrunched face that lights the room:

concerned eyebrows and pouty mouth remind me of the boy I once chased

around and around the now frozen lawn,

threatening to kiss.


So I do, quietly and softly

under the thin sour light.
