I. on the sidewalk

A full day beyond your touch 
he filled his whole body,
cherishing a discovered heirloom;
He strode a step ahead.

II. at the pool hall

He lost one distracted game,
and declined each turn 
until closing time.
He was there not to play 
not to be lonely 
at home.

III. at the party

He wasn't thinking of music 
as his fingers found his guitar.
Love songs hung in the air 
with new, soft intensity.

Retreating behind his door,
he emerged with his smile 
and unfocused eyes 
recovered by your voice.

IV. in the restaurant

His shirt a wide river 
from his shoulders 
like his hair,
it’s bed his body’s curves.
I remembered your sweaters ebb 
when he pushed his sleeves 
above his elbows.

V.
