end-august, the skies ache.
stories open like butterflies,
flit on my cassette-player
“isn’t this the one i wrote?”
you ask. i am quietly
slipping into a trance,
of apricot afternoons and fields
of gauzy sunshine, slipping
inside-out like honeybees, “that
was our first kiss,”
i mumble. “our first fight,” you say as
time dulls against us,
folding under our thinning skin,
pink iridescence.
