remember morning
rising in a sweep of lashes
day splintering through the weave
in burnished stripes of turquoise
colouring time
our dreams made alkaline
subconscious stirrings
turning us to rust

remember morning
how we folded
made ourselves velvet
creatures wrapped in translucent dawn
held inside the breath of
our temporal home

remember morning
its hazy exhalation
our eyes lowered
inward, skin skimming  
searching for bronze interludes
while we grazed on one another's sleep
