260poem

July 21, 2011

Lately I’m happy with little more
than your world within my world.
I need no alcohol to blur reality.
No cologne to announce my arrival,
no fireworks to break the everyday,
though I’d steal the sparks
drifting to dream if they’d fit
in my pocket. Like keys in blue jeans
they’d warm us with their reminder
that two blocks and a hallway from here
we’ll be wrapped up in darkness,
the way the blanket hugs the bed,
the way Cuevana streams uninterrupted,
the way a romantic comedy purrs you to sleep,
the way the roof keeps the rain out.

LOCATION: Buenos Aires, Argentina – Watching movies in my room with Valeria; Cuevana is a free movie site popular in Argentina.
