golden-turning,
honey-tasting,
smokeyoceanbarbeque-smelling
bare skin, muscles aching...
we closed our salty eyes
and feeling the sun, spread our  l i m b s
like roots
on the surface of the echoing blanket
while leaves dappled the amber of the long, late day
the smell of petrol and strawberry-marmalade
washed over us,
wave
after warm, sleepy wave
a caramel jawline, caught in the corner of my eyes
spoke to me of a hanging mid-afternoon, sad and sweet
like a decade-old song in the air.
but our fingers were long and limp on our laps
through lines of flushed rhythm, my seafoam blood was smiling,
my heart a wine-press,
my eyes shutting their flicker lenses
to paint this skin-glowing picture
with drowsy, syncopating brush strokes
 in time,
  in swing;
on the september backseat we sat...
infinite.
       sated.
           glimmering.
A pretty picture that's been inside my head since late September.
To be read aloud...WHISPER IT.

Beautifully constructed and thought out. It is rich, delicate and evocative.

This is definitely to be read aloud. Easily one of my favorite pieces of yours!

lovely flow to this piece - it rolls quite naturally off of the tongue.
