Hanging in the Hush
Hold me in perfect stillness in
still air while downstairs
the coffee slips into the pot and the sun
warms the windows
but do not stir
softer than pillows have just fit
and your head has fallen so
and your smooth legs
while downstairs the grapefruit
is cold and ripe and red
in the icebox
and the jam is nearly
but even the sheets
as we breathe deeply
letting the last few stars
fall quietly from our eyes
a patient guest,
waits by the newspaper
