Poetry
11/1/2020
riding in the back
of a police car
looking into darkness
at dim porch lights
shadowing empty homes
the night sky
full of stars
so far away
looking so small
soon to be back
behind cold prison walls
staring into darkness
freedom is still lost
not even the beauty
of the night sky
can bring it back

I love laying here
in bed all morning
blankets thrown back
eyes closed
our naked bodies touching
listening to your breathing
as if I were dreaming
of the last sounds
of our summer days,
