before dawn three [poetry]

[before dawn one]

[before dawn two]

**

salty hotel room air, scent of

tears and tiredness

tender bodies against slippery sheets

but she cradles his warmth

over, around, within

his heartbeat overwhelms the noise of a dying city

of loneliness

and she is home in his arms

even if home is far away

  1. With each breath
    the salinity burned deeper in their blood
    a tender memory of a primal ocean now awakening,
    at the seams of their merging flesh
    now rushing, frothing,
    a poem in endless waves
    washing the white heart of dawn,
    into their skin etching the indelible runes
    their lips with every breath would utter,
    home…
