Two Lovers

Rating: 5.0
While
standing alone
on the
jetty
at
the
southern
end
of this
most
southern
town

a calypso moon
rose
to dance
in
the
cloudless sky

above
a
static sea

as
the sun
still
lingered

taking time
descending
in the
Gulf

burnished red
and
burnished white
lovely
but
contrasting

positioned
between
these
evocative
events

she questioned
as she looked about

do
the
two
cancel
one another
out

concurrent shadows
disemboweled
by
concurrent light

sensory redundancy
torn between the two
in love with both

she wished
the sun to set

and leave her
too
seduce
moon

born again
with morning dawn
the sun her
dearest
dearest
friend

would be
welcome
back into
her
bed
