With No Regard for Fall
(Summer Loving II)
That summer: I was eighteen, as was he.
he had a hard jaw, soft lips, sunless cheeks,
He spoke in poetry that trusted me.
We made love for a lifetime, in just weeks.
We screamed to Jimmy Buffet at sunset,
we sat up playing “secrets” after dawn,
He held my wrists under mosquito net
and dreamed of together in his back lawn.
I drove to his house all alone at night;
In my backseat we pushed away the fall;
We didn’t care if we were wrong or right,
because there I had him and that was all.
We weren't sensible but where passionate
And since the fall, I’ve wished I could forget.
