sometimes I picture you
 1
naked sleeping
 2
and me too
 3
sleeping naked with a blanket of
 4
early morning summertimes
 5
wrapped around
 6
our ankles
 7
 
 
a certain level of intimacy
 8
is implied
 9
 
 
like God was lying there
 10
between you and  me and that old
 11
leatherbound copy
 12
of Leaves of Grass
 13
 
 
like every spirit
 14
of our ancestry
 15
was hiding in the folds of our forgotten
 16
clothes
 17
 
 
when it was too hot to sleep
 18
I imagined a camera
 19
looking out at us
 20
through the mirrored doors
 21
 
 
sometimes I got up
 22
and drank the last bit
 23
of guiness from all the empty bottles
 24
in the kitchen
 25
 
 
I used to plan 7-day trips
 26
to Antigua
 27
i never told you about
 28
 
 
sometimes I picture you
 29
in bookstores
 30
 
 
you have a henry miller beard
 31
and you are writing letters
 32
to me
 33
with a feather quill
 34
 
 
sometimes I picture you
 35
in seattle bars
 36
 
 
you are laughing
 37
with women who look
 38
nothing like me
 39
