Friday Night, Saturday Morning

stale naked body
bumpy skin
raw tiles
filtered water

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

hands brush back
excess, breathing into
submission of spitting out

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
