Nine months of new beginnings
No returns, no repeats, no regrets.
Shy smiles on a sunny walk along the N waterfront
Turned to warm hugs on a snowshoe hike of the B-P trail.
Thumb snaps on what’s app became
Hours of sensuous conversation,
Black braid caresses at S P,
And a glimpse of hands touching over Chess at the Vault.
When nails grazed skin in silent moments of passion,
Throaty peals of laughter over a shared ice cube,
Bites on an Adam’s apple and
Teeth on the soft skin of a mango.
With intertwined legs at an all night pizza place,
Holding hands and jumping slushy ice puddles
Whispered vows at an airport,
And red light kisses.
