PALM SPRINGS
 
we rode bikes            laughing
 
   the sun         pedals woof          wild
 
index fingers             pointed mountaintops
    hiking         heat       in flip  -  flops
 
    canopy games            spilled blue      ink
blueing                       the vodka pool
 
on your knees            you told me
it was too early          you like to be teased
 
That was          
                                                all we had.
