Together

evoking ritual from routine, they
would summon the muses
(& a few sirens too), kissing
then skin diving into each other
as he would momentarily
shake her tree. but after
getting down with the sounds
around, they slept almost
touching. he noted how
her hair softened her face & she
made such quiet sounds
of sleep, & how he’d love
to be able to sleep with such peace.
