月 (Moon)

Her smile
lingered,

fallen blooms
of evening jasmine
still granting
cold concrete

tentative,
chaste kisses

as she slowly
drew layers
of musk and lace

around a
voluptuous frame.

You held your gaze
with mine –

even as
skeletal trees
blotted out
your limpid orbs,

and buildings
swore to hide
your pregnant form
from desperate eyes.

I remember
when she
was once all mine,

galloping across
this dusty plain

dotted with
the seemingly
fewest of cares.
