Poem: Midnight Snack

December 3, 2018



It’s 2am and the furnace

of our passion

is cooling     slowly


we rise, tottering together,

arms entwined,

to the kitchen    kissing


after making love

we make toast

thick with butter     oozing


rich strawberry jam

streaked liked blood

or rust on a fence     rich


as sweet love’s triangle:

you and me and toast
