We greet the morning,
coffee and ice cream for breakfast.
The stream flows east toward the river.
The eddies from the stream are like shaving cream.
I dip my feet in the stream.
I kiss your cheeks.
When the sun sets its red curtains,
I am overcome.
I follow you to the shadow of the moon
where there is no light.
