Tuesday Poem: happened to meet

happened to meet
fingers extending a welcome
household of tired gods
the table, drinks

then morning.

Birds, coffee, the paper
affirmed you

my hand on your hip
my hand on your breast
my hand on your heart.

Credit note: “happened to meet” is a new poem, first published in my new poetry collection Men Briefly Explained.
