tea and oranges

Night smells rise with crushed
cardamom steam and I can see
you, again, perched atop my body,

your smooth belly rising and falling

to the city sounds from the street below.
I rest my hands on your Portly hips -
your mother's only lasting gift to you -
and watch as bare skin and ripe,
full pomegranate breasts collect
the trickles of red neon
that slip in from the Half-Moon Cafe'.

And when I open my eyes,
I find that you have left
masala tea and oranges
next to your manuscript on
the night stand,
my favorite books are
gone from the shelf,
and I am late for work.
