[we met at the horizon…]

for shawn.

we met at the horizon–i said hello and you got
me a chair. your eyes were marbled with cloud,
the sky’s denim, and i kissed your eyelids with
my butterfly mouth and although we knew that
at any moment the sea might rise to swallow
us up, we were not afraid. i emptied the sand
from my mouth so i could better tell you how
much i love you, and we left the line between
sea and sky a rumpled bedsheet.
