tomorrow morning ... before you open your eyes...

feel me there lying in bed with you... curled up against my back... slivered perfect spoons......

your face pressed into my long long shiny hair... it's silky smells of island coconut and Indian vanilla....

your strong arms clasped around my waist

and your hands rest silently on my abdomen... when sleepily you pull me closer... just the way one might pull a down comforter up under their chin..... then release a sleepy sigh....

i turn my head and rub my face against your face... all jagged rough and musky smelling ... then fall again satisfied into a deeper sleep

lets don't get up early this morning lover....let's stay this way

That sounds pretty damn good.

I don't comment very often anymore, but I do read your poems from time to time Nan.

nicely done.

If I smoked, I'd light up a cigarette right now.
