Desire


Do you remember?
The monotonous click
Of sprinklers
On a still summer night
The whoosh of water
Spraying with a click

Do you remember?
The solitary whine
Of a mosquito
In the hot darkness of night
The sound of the smack
And smear of blood

Do you remember?
The slow trickle of sweat
Beaded rivulet
Rolling down
Sheets turned damp
In the sultry night

Do you remember?
The taste of desire
The sweet sour tang
Of longings ache
To lightly touch
The golden glint of sunlit hair

I remember?
Slipping hard into
Unsettled sleep
Sheets turned damp
The sultry heat of

Desire
