cinnamon bronze

maybe it’s the colour of sex

skin on a sunny beach
up close and sweaty
sun lotion the perfume
and the taste on my lips

dash into breaking waves
sand shifting underfoot
gliding into a slap soft landing
sliding skewed onto heroship

everything is close up
all myopic macrocosm
glossy warm lips
hot quick breath

and sand in everything
