Happy Anniversary, hon.
This is my third published poem and my first print-only. Check out THE UNROREAN (Summer/Fall '15). Check it out also for some poets with actual talent, why don't you.
It's my and my wife's Seventh anniversary today, so I thought why not?
The scene is from our old neighborhood. I guess it sorta looks twilighty.
Here's the text:
The love that lies by you sleeping deeper than the morning you're unsure you want to wake at all.
There will be need for that later, when the sun glares through the window like a benedict preceding a nosy fork.
For now, lie there yourself, suffused with the fine silence, day's encroachment only tingling your pores.

The Unrorean blog is where you can pick up a copy, so pick up a copy from the Unrorean blog, already. It's a great issue, if I do say so myself, and I do, and not just because my poem to my wife is on the front page: /redirect?redir_token=y4lF7qZIv_yI0HcujUC1-wM1t118MTUwNjM2ODg3OUAxNTA2MjgyNDc5&event=video_description&q=http%3A%2F%2Fencirclepub.com%2Funrorean%2F2015%2F07%2F22%2Fdead-swans-and-pissed-off-lovers-celebrating-15-years%2F
