Summer

i want to say it was summer
that afternoon
we coiled like smoke
around each other
on the couch
watching reruns
of Sanford and Son
straight, broke, hungry
but none of that mattered…
i want to say it was summer
as i laid there
tangled up in you
and knew for the first time
what it meant
to love someone
with my whole mind
and body and spirit
to be in your arms
and yet ache
to devour you
at the same time

i want to say it was summer
because it was…
it was the summer of my life...
