I Compare her to a New Day




























The sun lifts its cherry face from dawns dim mist. Light sneaks around window blinds, stretching gold pillars across the bed. With a crooked squint, her smile crinkles, like leaves outlined on the wall. And outside trees glow with a sudden buzz; a thousand clamoring rebirths. A breath through her pale lips, bleeds against my naked chest. A wisp of perfumed hair chases about like fire flies under my nose. I await the flutter of her eyes, before breathing.
