Boards on a sponge breathe,

each other’s pumping knots expand and contract quietly and fretless hours pass without misunderstanding lended 

from a month of bad weather. 

That’s the way I like to remember us – 

Mouthful of forever

Invincible in our recovery

Waiting for whatever surprise 

Arrives with a tax return. 


Good morning habit kiss. 
Good measure and chivalry;

Not Snakeskin

On dirty sheets.
