Friday Night, Saturday Morning

stale naked body
bumpy skin
raw tiles
filtered water

a FLASH:
laughing, beer, dancing
midnight feasting, and
escorting an old friend home

hands crown head
brush back excess
breath into submission
spitting out sneakers

the kiss became the scale
weighing on one side
a life partnership
based on human flesh

pressure off
resisting bitter air
scratchy cotton
naked body anew
