You came drifting in, one cool November evening.
You caught my breath and held it with your arms.
It’s like electric, snow in the air.
Your lips just hang there.
As you lay beside me.
I’ll watch you twitch and hum in your sleep.
Like hot water and tea, I want you to steep with me.
Stir my bones and mix with me.
As sweet as sugar, pressing into your lips. (As we dissolve)
