A poem for a lazy summer day

Bring me to the place you’ve dreamed

of. The bed upstairs,

the raft in the cool, still lake.


Peach juice, sticky sweet, running

down my cheeks, my thighs.

Dab it with the linen sheet.


A current in the water

pulls the pit, spits it

on the beach. Another rock.


I want more days like this, please.

Swaying to a stop,

licking til it hurts your tongue.


Worry the sand in the crease.

Flip the table, if

you so hate the way it's set.
