For Tim

by T. J. Banks

you & I

naked in the dusk

listening to the dulcimer

rhythms on the radio

caught up in


birches throwing

their outlines whitely

against a muted mauve & gray

sky outside

cradling your body

in mine, thrusting upwards,

hips against you, licking you...

kneading your chest hairs

with gentled fingers

playing you dulcimer-like

in the dark.
