Keeping score

water-colored threads

beat against the rolled-up windows,

oozed down, raindrop zig-zags

making foggy promises,

Evan-

e-scent,

as they slithered

down the blue-grey bonnet.

you and i and wetness

formed a trio on the backseat;

unseated desire arching

for satiation,

long and liquid.

if i am to keep score

for that warm, foggy memory,

it’ll be the rain-threads,

their clanging clusters on the hood,

metallic of that car,

naturally conjoining,

that i’ll remember

and then,

you.

  1. I love how the memory of the rain precedes the memory of the person.

    Um, is it warm in here, or is it just me? That was gorgeous, and, um, very intimate. 🙂
