The gentle buzz
of lightning bugs
and soft warmth of summer nights -
that, that is my new years
resolution to you.
Honeysuckle sweet love,
dripping like hard candy, the scent of cherry,
licking lips and sweet taste of skin
and mapping out this year in kisses.
Fireworks and dancing languidly,
close, too close, friction on friction
and smooth, soft hands.
A full moon
on a dark night
and a million twinkling stars,
watching from the grass
where we lay hand in hand
and you get your lipstick on my teeth.
Sharing sweaters and swapping eyelash wishes,
armed with sharpies and good intentions,
spelling out our resolutions
on concrete walls
and on each other's souls.
