After the movies

in those nights we slipped

into your house

front room dim-lighted

the old man’s liquor cabinet

unlocked

everyone asleep

and youthful we thought nothing

of taking

slow kisses

sloshing rum Coke ice

into glasses

soft radio

diving drowning

in rising warmth

again

  1. This blew me away and made me wish I could go back to rewrite mine! I love the flow, like the pouring of a drink, and especially “sloshing rum Coke ice.” I can almost hear it all tumbling and sloshing into the glass.
