On the edge with you


Wander sideways.
Slip like paper into the in-between
and follow the scent
of lemon and cinnamon.

Let your bare feet
find the pattern of the wood.
Toes making like riptide.
Salty sea air in your hair.

Lie close to my skin
and breathe the calm in.
Find the peace in cutoffs
and tangled fingers.

Let me teach you about coconut water
sipped from a palm
as we gaze out at the sun
between our feet.
