like that smiles when the world is hers
and she held your eyes out in the
breezeway down by the shore
in the lazy summer
And she pulled you in, and she bit your lip,
and she made you hers.
She looked deep into you as you lay
together quiet in
the grasp of dusk and summer.
And she combed your hair, and she kissed
your teeth and she made you better
than you'd been before
She told you bad things you wished
you could change in the lazy summer
And she told you, laughing down to
her core, so she would not cry as
she lay in your lap.
She said "nobody here can live forever,
quiet in the grasp of dusk and summer".
She said, "no one is alone
the way you are alone"
And you held her looser than you would
have if you ever could have known
Some things tie your life together,
slender threads and things to treasure
Days like that should last and last and last
