Abandon Januaryhello-january


here in blue cold January

toes and fingers numb

still my heart blazes

despite the rigidity of the season

passion flows well enough in my veins

reminding me that Florence would be fine

for lovers such as we


except that we are only

two cold prairie lovers too poor

for anything but fancy

the only exotic climate that between us


so if I put

pomegranate lips persuasively

upon your mouth, your stomach

your Michelangelo thighs


in the morning will we rise

abashedly or boldly

will we love again

will we return

to this blue cold January

numb but warmed by

making at long last love
