    tangerines and perspiration

    august
    in lafayette
    where
    southern hospitality is synonymous with
    twin rocking chairs
    on wrap-around porches
    and tangerines-
    bright orange
    peels removed
    in one quick motion
    twisted citrus snakes
    collecting at feet
    juice dripping off chins and
    running down arms
    mixing with
    humidity
    pressing into
    crooks of elbows
    sliding down spines to
    collect in pools
    at the smalls of backs.

    we press ice cubes to foreheads
    and fan ourselves with free hands
    content to just exist
    in the sticky sweetness of bayou summer

    I walked for countless miles,
    on a journey to Mars.
    Climbing the stairway to Heaven,
    each step harder than the last.
    The pressure,
    forcing my head to hang low.
    Squeezing it like an Orange,
    blood flowing from my nose,
    flooding the stairway.
    It's Christmas,
    December 25th, 2012.
    My veins, ice cold, for you.
    Blue, purple, black.
    I loved you,
    I walked eternity for you.
    I fell for you.

    we were shadows,
    drops of dusk stretching thin
    like a crop of harvest hair
    bending at the corners
    of day,
    earlobes dancing under
    the jawline of January
    in a sinking sunset

    when day rose,
    as an ugly flower pressed
    between the book's covers
    the taste of tangerine
    squeezed itself
    onto chins nuzzled
    from faces too stark
    for morning birdsong
    and we closed our aching eyes
    to dreams of Norway.
    can I kick it?

    She reimbursed me with frank conversation,
    tucking pink wig hairs behind ears that never flushed
    and mentioning how strawberry was the only Frappacino
    she likes-- close enough to Thank you.

    Her gait was uncompromising, we never sat

    down the sidewalk was Chopsticks. Open! flashing in red,
    which had much more agreeable benches
    than Starbucks, plus green was not her thing.

    We made time for sushi and coffee, sometimes
    gossip and a pinch of curiosity, which made
    stomaching each other less painful.

    I was alone, and she was miserable.

    September welcomed her, and I was obliged.
