in the sun

do you see that glimmer of gold?
that is my lover
floating in the salt bath ocean
giving the sun a run for her money

i held her in the sand
with the sea in the air
i could feel her breathing against my chest

i will never forget
the way she takes the light
and sends it back into the universe

she warms me
in the sun
my golden lover

my amazing experience the old lamp in our living room is finicky, so it stays on, better to offer its light always, than only half the time it’s needed
