and CHEERS

Like a knife

slides

warm through butter

so gently does her hand

into mine

telling me all

I need to know

about her character

and it takes all my courage

not to melt

with the toast

she proceeds to deliver

glasses raised

and CHEERS

go our spirits

together

down the hatch

spread eagle

she’s tolerant

thin

and warm

irresistibly open

like a wound

gapes

breathing in

and out

then in then out

we go

through the empty streets

at dawn

searching, always searching

for the next.
